Contracts of Employment

A common mistake is that employers believe that they are not required to issue employees with a contract of employment.  However employers should be aware that failure to provide a contract of employment to your employee within eight weeks of commencement gives rise to an automatic claim by an employee where they could be awarded up to a maximum of four weeks pay.

Legislation dictates that an employee is entitled to a written statement of their main terms and conditions of employment.  Key information must be included within this statement along with the procedure which the employer will observe before and for the purpose of dismissing the employee.
