What is a contract of employment?

As a legally binding document, failure to provide employees with a written contract not only breaches the law but also creates lack of clarity as neither party know their exact rights, duties or obligations. 

In our guide, we look at:

  • What should be covered in employment contracts, including:
    • Express, implied and incorporated terms
    • A written statement - the key terms and conditions that exist between the employer and the employee
  • Other additional protective clauses to consider, such as disciplinary procedures, examples of misconduct and email, internet and social media rules
  • Things to remember when creating an employment contract
