Night Worker Employment Contract

EMP.CONT.25

This Night Worker Employment Contract is designed for use by an Employer when engaging someone to work at night. This contract provides for all the additional rights that are given to night workers and is up to date with the most recent legislation. This contract has been recently updated to include new and improved clauses providing enhanced protection for the employer.

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 contract is suitable for use when employing adult staff, for young workers employers should consider using the Young Worker Contract instead.  

This contract requires the employer to provide night workers with a free health assessment prior to them taking up their assignments - as well as at regular intervals afterwards. Furthermore, it contains a legally necessary clause which prohibits employees from working more than 8 hours in one 24 hour period if undertaking hazardous or strenuous work.
