All employees should have an employment contract so constructing an employment contract is a vital part of any working relationship between a company the employer and the employee. Employment contracts if done properly, are legally binding documents or contracts formed between the employee and the company or employer. This agreement or written document ensures from the start what is expected of the other throughout the working relationship.


Employment Contracts London – What terms & conditions must be included?


Employment law in the UK sets out that the statement of main terms in any employment contract must include the following information:

  • Name of employer
  • Name of employee
  • Start date(day, month and year)
  • Place of work(address of head office if employee works on the road)

  • Details of pay(including overtime entitlement)
  • Holiday entitlement
  • Sick pay entitlement
  • Pension entitlement
