Standard Employment Contract proves a hit

The Workplacelaw Network’s Standard Employment Contract and Guidance Notes has sold out and is being re-printed by the Network. The Contract, written by the Employment Group at Masons solicitors, serves as a template to help employers ensure they comply with their requirements under law and to provide a clear record of the agreement between employer and employee. The document has proved extremely popular for HR departments and SMEs.

All employers are required by law to issue employees with a written statement of certain terms of employment. The Workplacelaw Network Standard Employment Contract and Guidance notes costs £34.50 and is available by calling 0870 777 8881 – please quote ref. 431062214. Alternatively, the Contract is free to Network members.
