Employee contracts

Contracts of employment are becoming more complex. Employment legislation requires that all employees are provided with a written statement of the terms and conditions of their employment. However, even if there is nothing in writing, a contract of employment still exists.

It is far better to have a contract of employment professionally drafted than to be left to argue what the terms of that contract were if a dispute later arises. A contract of employment should cover items such as: payment, hours of work, holiday pay and entitlement, sick pay, redundancy and any notice required to be given by the employer for dismissal.

All of these terms, and any specific to the nature of your business, should be included in a written contract of employment to avoid any uncertainty at a later date. Everys employment law team understands that a professionally drafted document at the outset can save considerable time and expense at a later date.
