Under UK Law, employers are legally obliged to issue a statement of terms of employment within two months of the date of the employment relationship commencing.
This gives employers the opportunity to set out clearly what they expect from their employees. A well drafted contract of employment will be up-to-date and compliant with laws and legislation.
These contracts will serve the employer well, should there be any difficulties in the employment relationship.
It should also provide employees with a clearer understanding of their rights and obligations.
If the contracts are regularly checked and kept up-to-date, it can reduce potential disputes from arising.
