What is an Employment law contract?
A: In the eyes of the law, an employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee that sets out each party’s rights and responsibilities. The terms of the contract can be written, verbal, or implied.
A work contract is a legally binding agreement between a company and an individual who has agreed to perform labor in exchange for payment. A verbal agreement can suffice instead of a written contract.
Employers are required by law to put some of the most vital aspects of their employees’ terms and conditions in writing. The Employment Rights Act of 1996 necessitates that employers provide a written statement of the main terms of employment within two calendar months from when the employee first starts working.
We always encourage businesses to provide an overview of terms and conditions as part of the induction process for new employees. This allows employees to ask questions and get a clear understanding of their employment contract from the start. We believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to employment law, but we also defend businesses and employees in tribunal hearings if necessary.
An employment law contract in Scotland will typically cover the following topics:
· Nature of the employment relationship
· Employee’s duties and responsibilities
· Hours of work and remuneration
· Probationary period
· Disciplinary and grievance procedures
· Health and safety provisions
· Termination of employment
