Your rights in contracts of employment
Every employee has the right to either a written contract of employment (a formal contract) or written statement of terms (usually in the form of a letter).
The basic terms to which you are entitled in a contract of employment are:
- job title
- holiday entitlement
- sick pay
- pension schemes
- notice period
- grievance procedure
You must receive the above within two months of commencing your employment. It is preferable that you obtain an employment contract if possible, as this will be a more detailed document and will therefore be more useful if you later enter into a dispute with your employer.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the legal information contained on “YouandYourRights” is accurate, it does not constitute legal advice tailored to your individual circumstances. If you act on it, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk. Neither the Proprietor nor Dean Dunham can assume responsibility and do not accept liability for any damage or loss which may arise as a result of your reliance upon it.
