All employees have a statutory right to a written statement of particulars of employment within two months of their start date. This is to be extended to cover all workers and to be provided by the start of employment (NEW FROM 6 April 2020)
Rather than issuing the 'statement' above and then a further document with all other non statutory information, we recommend that a contract of employment (an essential component of risk management) tailored to the specific needs of the business and the individual job role, is provided at the point the offer is made. This contract will provide you with maximum protection whilst minimising disputes and ambiguity about the employment relationship.
The Handbook is a vital document, providing staff with information and policies relevant to their employment - in short, how your business operates and what is expected from staff. Policies typically include, Disciplinary and Grievance, Attendance Management, Internet & Email use, Flexible Working, Dignity at Work etc. When policies are applied consistently in the business it removes any doubt as to the particular standards and rules which apply, making it easier to manage employees.
If you have not updated your documents in the last three years, call us and ask to review your current Contract of Employment and Handbook and make recommendations for improvement or enhacement to keep your business and employees protected.
