When you hire someone as an employee, it is a legal requirement to provide them with a contract of employment. The contract begins on the employees first day of work, so the contract needs to be in place in advance of their start date. But what needs to be included? The document needs to include the terms of employment and contain a summary of what will be expected of the employee, and what the employee should expect from the employer.
• Job title and responsibilities
• Where you will be working
• Holiday entitlement
• Wages and pay date schedule
• Contracted hours
• Terms and conditions
• Sickness procedure
• Notice period/redundancy terms
Your employees are an essential part of your business, but they can also be a source of difficulty and stress. By offering a clear and concise employment contract right from the start, you know you’re in a strong position if any issues should arise.
It’s a legally binding document, so needs to be treated as such.
