Employees are legally entitled to written terms and conditions of employment in accordance with the Employment Rights Act 1996 within 8 weeks of their employment commencing.
Why should a business worry about having written employment terms and conditions?
- They define the terms under which employees work
- A contract is a legally binding agreement between you and your employee
- Written terms provide certainty and protection to both parties alike
- Written terms prevent any misunderstanding and avoid the risk of employment disputes
For Avantis HR clients who have taken up silver and gold packages, the service of writing employment terms to meet their exact requirements is included.
Alternatively, we are able to offer this as a standalone service if required.
