What is an  Employment Contract for?

It records the terms on which the employee is engaged by the employer.  And there are a lot of legal requirements in the UK with regard to employment contracts. An employment contract should be issued to employees no later than 8 weeks after they commence employment.

This  employment contract has clauses dealing with the workplace pension requirements as well as data protection, reflecting the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018.  It also refers to employment-related policies and procedures, for which we have templates.
