Contract of employment templates

Employers should use written contracts of employment with all their employees.

Why do I need to issue employment contracts?

The law entitles employees to at least a written statement of their terms and conditions of employment, but a properly-drafted contract is much better because the employer can set out what they expect of the employee in detailed clauses, and doing this can avoid disputes or confusion later.

An employers can use clauses to cover holiday entitlement and rules, notice periods, working hours and breaks, the use of internet and social media at work, their dress code and rules about uniforms, specify who pays for the cost of training or professional fees, use of company vehicles, return of company property when leaving employment, performance review, and many other areas of the employment relationship.
