Employment Contracts and Staff Handbooks
Our handbooks and tailored employment contracts are customised to suit the exact needs of each individual business. Recent changes in various employment acts, mean that it is now more important than ever to furnish your employees with contracts and handbooks.
With the enactment of the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, employers must now provide new employees their 5 core terms of employment in writing within 5 days of them starting employment and the rest of the terms of employment must be given within two months of the employee commencing employment.
The Act also introduced banded hours; it prohibits zero-hour contracts except in the case of work carried out in emergency circumstances or to provide short term relief work to cover routine absences and it has also simplified the National Minimum Wage rates.
The agreed terms of an employment contract are of paramount importance in determining the rights and duties of both the employer and employee. Each employee must be given a written statement of their terms and conditions of employment, as per provisions under the Terms of Employment (Information) Acts, within two months of commencing employment.
All employer/employee relationships involve a contract of employment whether this is written or implied and it governs many aspects of the employer/employee relationship. It is important to understand what information must be contained in a contract of employment and be mindful that employers have a responsibility to issue certain terms and conditions to employees.
