If you run your own small business then you will (hopefully) know that you are obliged to provide all of your employees with a ‘statement of terms’ (i.e. a contract) within two months of their start date. Like many other small business owners however, you may not have an overly extensive knowledge of how to go about sorting contracts out and ensuring all of the legal technicalities are suitably taken care of.
Of course, a quick look on Google will soon show you that there are plenty of free employment contracts available to download from the Internet. However, whilst these documents may initially appear comprehensive enough, they do not always cover the important aspects which you as an employer require.
Fortunately we here at Simply-docs can help in this respect as, whilst our contracts, templates and other employment documents are not free, they are guaranteed to provide you with everything you will possibly need.
A comprehensive contract of employment is one that enables you to clearly specify an employee’s duties and responsibilities. This is important as it ensures employees know exactly what is expected of them.
At the very least, a comprehensive employment contract template needs to include:
• Names of the Parties
• Employment Contract Start Date
• Employee’s Job Title and Description
• Place of Work
• Hours of Work
• Probationary Period
• Sickness & Disability
• Restrictive Covenants
• Grievance and Disciplinary Procedure
• Prior Agreements
• Particulars of Employment
