These can be oral, written or implied or indeed a mixture! Employers have a legal duty however to provide their employee with a written statement of the major terms and conditions of their employment within the first two months of their employment. This written statement may or may not constitute the full terms of an employee’s Employment Contract.
We provide advice to employees negotiating their Employment Contracts. Often it’s employers who have the lion’s share of the bargaining power in any negotiation over the terms of employment: we can help employees shift the balance back towards their own interests.
