What is an employment contract?
An employment contract is an agreement which sets out the relationship between employee and employer and the employment conditions, rights, responsibilities and duties.
An employment contract should always exist between an employer and an employee – it helps to protect you as a business and also creates certainty. The employer and employee should stick to the terms stated on the contract until the contract ends or until the terms of the contract are changed, which should usually be done by consultation and agreement.
A contract must contain particular information as a minimum including place of work, hours of work, pay, when continuous employment starts, holiday entitlement, sick pay, pension and notice.
Failing to meet the legal standards required of an employment contract leaves you and your company vulnerable to litigation, financial penalties and more.
