Term Time Employment Contract


This Term Time Employment Contract is designed for use by Companies and Employers who wish to employ or retain staff to work during school term times. This is particularly useful where Employers wish to retain valued staff who desire a different work – life balance.

Employers should be aware that their employees have the right under certain circumstances to request flexible working arrangements, and in that context Term Time Contracts are becoming increasingly common, and are especially useful to parents.

The Pensions Act 2014 introduced a new state pension for people reaching state pension age on or after 6 April 2016, replacing the previous basic state pension and additional state pension and ending contracting out for defined-benefit schemes. This employment contract has been updated accordingly with the removal of the clause referring to the contracting out certificate.

This Term Time Contract complies fully with the Working Time Regulations 1998, and provides Term Time workers with the same rights as full time staff.

This contract contains the following sections:
1. General
2. Duties and Job Title
3. Date of Commencement
