Employment Contracts

What is an Employment Contract?

An Employment Contract is a legally binding document that outlines the terms and conditions you and your employee must adhere to during employment. Employment Law states that a written Employment Contract must be arranged for, and given to, each individual employee within two months of their start date.

What kind of Employment Contracts are there?

There are various different types of Employment Contracts that you may want to consider, depending on your company’s needs. These can include:

● Full time
● Part time
● Fixed term
● Permanent
● Flexible Hours
● Casual hours
● Zero Hours

To name a few. However, even if you know what kind of contract you might need, the requirements of your employees and the needs of your company can vary.

Can I use the same Employment Contract template for each employee?

A template can be useful, but often as more of a guide than an all-applicable document. Although it can seem like there’s a lot of overlap with contracts, it’s essential that you take into account the specific needs of your company and your employees.

At OptHR we can help you choose the right contract for your employees, even if it means choosing more than one type.

How can I improve my Employment Contract?

Clauses and restrictive covenants can be weaved into your Employment Contract to suit your requirements. We can ensure you choose the right clauses and restrictive covenants for your employees, leaving you with an air-tight Employment Contract.

What’s the difference between a restrictive covenant and a clause?

● Clauses are extra rules that can be applied to your employees. These can focus on things such as confidentiality, competition and probationary periods to name a few.

● A restrictive covenant is a specific type of clause which often focuses on ensuring your employees can’t poach your clients or members of your team. There are a number of different types of restrictive covenants.

The possibilities are varied and complex, which is why OptHR are here to help you create the perfect Employment Contract.
