Employment Contracts

An employment contract is an agreement between an employer and an employee. These will be different from self-employed agreements and even casual worker contracts.

The contract will contain mutual obligations between a Company and an employee. For example, the business will pay a certain amount to an individual which is agreed between parties. Clauses that have been written into a contract are called express terms. Implied terms are not necessarily written in or orally agreed, for example, a relationship of mutual trust and confidence is maintained the employer has not behaved in a way to damage this.

Under the Employment Rights Act, an employee must receive a written statement that outlines the employment within two months of the start date.
