What is a contract of employment?
A contract of employment refers to the employee offer letter and written statement of terms that you must provide to your employees, by law, within eight weeks of commencement of employment.
These documents should outline the job title, salary, working hours, holiday entitlement and name of employee as well as any conditions of employment.
By having up to date and comprehensive contracts of employment in place for every employee, you are protecting your business in case of an employee dispute or claim.
It can also help towards retaining employees as they will feel far more secure and satisfied in their role if they know their paperwork is fair and regularly reviewed.
What is an employee handbook and what should it contain?
An employee handbook is an extensive document that outlines every aspect of company procedures, guidelines and expectations.
The handbook would include topics such as annual leave, uniform, code of conduct, company benefits, lateness etc.
An employee handbook is not a legal requirement but most organisations do find it extremely useful and you will often be advised to write one up and distribute it amongst your employees to act as a point of reference in employee disputes or tribunals.
