Employment Contracts Template?
WHY SHOULD I USE THIS EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS TEMPLATE?
This employment contract is for a permanent employee. It covers the basic things that you need to include. It then guides you through important extra information which will make your relationship clearer and easier. For example, do you want to have a probation period? Are you going to pay overtime? How and when can holidays be booked? What happens if the employee is sick? What are the hours of work? Do you want to include optional lay off if there is a temporary reduction in work or a temporary closure of the workplace?
Remember, you have to give employees a written statement about the main conditions of their employment.
WHAT’S IN THE EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS TEMPLATE?
Employment contracts need to be flexible so we’ve made sure ours is easy to adapt and use. Firstly, start with the basics that you need to include. Then, let the contract help you decide what’s best to protect the employee and your business. For example, spell out what standards of work and time keeping you expect. Then, explain the employee’s responsibility for their workload. Finally, be clear about confidentiality and security.
You can decide whether you want to include optional clauses. Like being able to furlough an employee or ask them to work less hours.
It means that the working relationship with your employee gets off to a clear start.
