Employment contracts are a fundamental part of any business. Ensure your employees know the terms of their employment with Winrow Solicitors, based in Caernarfon and serving the North Wales area.
All employees will have a contract of employment regardless of whether anything is in writing.
It is preferable to have a written contract setting out all the main terms and conditions of employment to avoid any future misunderstandings.
Without a formal written contract, the employment will be based on statutory rights, custom and practice and some implied terms.
If you do provide a written contract, it will be preferable to have this signed by the employee but that is not strictly necessary. If your employee works to the terms within the contract, it will be seen that they have accepted those terms unless they raise an objection.
The same goes for any unilateral changes you may make to their contract. If they work to those changes it will probably be seen as acceptance of them. even though they do not sign the revised contract.Free Consultation
