contracts of employment

It is best to put a contract in writing - it saves a lot of potential misunderstanding
further down the line. Simple misunderstandings over what is or what is not in a
contract are one of the main causes of employment tribunal claims.

   •   A contract of employment is an agreement between an employer and
       employee and is the basis of the employment relationship.

   •   Most employment contracts do not need to be in writing to be legally valid,
       but it is better if they are.

   •   A contract 'starts' as soon as an offer of employment is accepted.
       Starting work proves that you accept the terms and conditions offered
       by the employer.

   •   Most employees are legally entitled to a Written Statement of the main
       terms and conditions of employment within two calendar months of
       starting work. This should include details of things like pay, holidays
       and working hours.

   •   An existing contract of employment can be varied only with the
       agreement of both parties.
