Provisions of Terms & Conditions of Employment

Provision of Terms & Conditions of Employment


The law requires you to provide the employee with written terms and conditions of employment of key aspects of his job soon (within 2 months) after starting employment.

Provision of Terms and Conditions of Employment

Written details of specified terms and conditions of employment must be provided to all employees within two months of starting employment.

If you fail to do so, the new employee is entitled to ask an employment tribunal to decide what terms and conditions of employment must be provided.

You will need to decide in what form the terms and conditions of employment should be given. Normally terms and conditions of employment will be provided in the employment contract or in a separate written statement. The minimum requirements are provided in the Section One Statement. Other contracts are available to suit the job specifications.

Certain particulars must be in one document. Exceptions are the grievance procedure and disciplinary procedure, sickness provisions, collective agreements, details given to employees working outside the UK and pension arrangements. These items can be referred to in separate documentation provided that they are readily accessible to the employee.
