After working for one month every employee is entitled to a Written Statement of Terms of Employment from their employer. Otherwise they can claim two to four months’ compensation.
The required information can be put into a written employment contract which provides more detail than a more basic written statement and is a better option for employers. It is always easier to get employees to agree and sign a written contract at the beginning of the employment relationship rather than after they have been working for a while. Better to have a signed contract from the start.
However changes do have to be made from time to time and this can pose particular problems and in some situations (e.g. after a TUPE transfer) there may be legal constraints on the changes you can make.
We advise on
- Prepare or review employment contracts, policies and handbooks
- Advise on contract changes and how to implement them
- Make sure that your employment terms properly fit your business
