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 employees who are looking for a different work – life balance.

This employment contract has a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)-compliant data processing clause. After 25 May 2018, employers must use this clause, as employers will not be able to rely on the existing generic consent clauses.

This contract is designed for use in respect of employees who work full-time during term time. Simply-Docs also offers a Term-time Working Policy.

For employees working part time or flexible hours, see the ‘Annualised Hours Employment Contract’ or ‘Flexi-Time Employment Contract’.

This contract provides that the employee’s salary will be paid in equal instalments over the year. There is also a provision for a specific amount to be set out in respect of paid statutory holiday entitlement. This point is to clarify that holiday pay has not been rolled up, a practice that is not allowed under the Working Time Regulations. 

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 contains the following sections:
1. General
2. Duties and Job Title
3. Date of Commencement
4. Hours of Work
