A new employee has said he was entitled to an employment contract from day one. Is he right?
Under the Employment Rights Act employees must be provided with a written statement of employment particulars (terms and conditions of employment). The Act sets out what must be included, but does allow some particulars to be in another document. Written employment contracts usually cover additional issues. The initial statement of employment particulars must be provided no later than two months after their employment begins.
We would recommend that all employment terms and conditions are issued before starting, and certainly no later than day one.See more
What Our Clients Say…
We rely on BackupHR
I rely on BackupHR to help me ensure we are doing the right thing both for the business and our employees. They provide a first class service with very quick turnaround and help considerably when trying to make sense of ever increasing legislation. The ability to speak to my consultant, knowing I will get that return call even if she is out or busy with another client gives me that little bit of extra confidence when dealing with difficult or tricky situations.

Way ahead of the “legal helpline” services
I have been stunned at how good the quality of the BackupHR™ service has been. BackupHR™ seem way ahead of the “legal helpline” services. They offer far more rounded support, including personal meetings when practicable.
Their advice has been clear, timely and has helped us and our Line Managers deal with a range of HR issues that inevitably arise from time to time. Excellent value for money and within a few months it felt like they were an integral part of our operations, (rather than a remote, anonymous helpline).
