Bar Staff Employment Contract


This Bar Staff Employment Contract can be used for temporary as well as permanent and fixed term positions. The contract contains specific clauses tailored to be appropriate for bar workers such as: smoking at work, using a mobile phone behind the bar, applicable dress code, security and stock control, the employer’s rights of search and restrictions on the employee’s ability to take on other paid work.

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.

The Drugs and Alcohol clause enables the employer to carry out random breath and drugs tests on employees who are suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The Pension Act 2014 has 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 template has been updated accordingly with the removal of the clause referring to the contracting out certificate.
