Contracts of Employment

As an employer you have to issue all employees with a “statement of initial employment particulars” – more commonly known as contracts of employment. At Turnstone HR we keep up to date with the relevant employment law and best practice and you can be sure that the contracts we draft for you are watertight and comply with current legislation.

Based in Barrow and Ulverston, and with experience of small businesses right across South Cumbria and beyond, we can make sure that the documents will be effective for the needs of your particular business, offering the right sort of protection both for you and for your employees. Contracts are a crucial tool for making sure your employees understand what is expected of them and can also be a useful starting-point for a discussion, should standards start to slip….

Are there different sorts of contracts? What should contracts include? Can we change the ones we’ve got?

Turnstone HR can take the worry out of this for you.

Most of our clients like to have a template they can use themselves with future new recruits. If that would suit your organisation, we can develop and supply a document with editable sections so that you can fill in each employee’s details without running the risk of changing the legal wording by mistake.

Alternatively, you might prefer that we develop a bespoke contract for each of your employees. We are happy to do that too.

Either way, all employees have the right to receive a contract within two months of their start date. If you neglect to do this you are putting your business at risk of a claim.

“There is evidence to suggest that good HR practice and people management in SMEs are key factors in strong business performance and can lead to increased productivity.”
