Quite often, an employment contract is the only formal documentation that exists between an employer and an employee. An employment contract is not something that is required by law when an employee starts work but a comprehensive employment contract could prove invaluable in protecting a business from an employee making a claim in a tribunal – an employment contract could also help an employer to protect their business from a situation, involving an employee, that could be harmful to the company.
It is an employer’s obligation to provide employees with a written statement, outlining the main responsibilities of the job role, within two months of an employee taking their position. A written statement for employees is just as important as an employment contract so it is vital that an employer seeks advice from a specialist solicitor if they need help with drafting any documentation for employees.
