Contract of Employment

Contract of Employment

A contract of employment is an agreement between an employer and employee and is the basis of the employment relationship. A contract 'starts' as soon as an offer of employment is accepted. Although not all contract need to be put in writing to be legally valid, it is better if they are and when written correctly, it saves a lot of potential misunderstanding or employment tribunal claims further down the line.

Most employees are legally entitled to a Written Statement of the main terms and conditions of employment within two calendar months of starting work. This should include details of things like pay, holidays and working hours. When signing a contract of employment, employees understand what is expected of them and what they get in return.
