Contracts of Employment

Currently only an employee is entitled to receive a written statement of particulars of employment (a contract of employment to most people), and this does not have to be provided until the employee has been employed for 2 months.

Under the catchily entitled The Employment Rights (Employment Particulars and Paid Annual Leave) (Amendment) Regulations 2018, from 6th April 2020 this will become a “Day 1 right” meaning that an employee will be entitled to receive a contract of employment from the outset of their employment.

Whilst this is a change in law, employers should already be doing this to ensure both parties are aware of and have agreed the terms on which the employment relationship will be based.

In addition, the equally catchy The Employment Rights (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019, extend the right to receive a written statement of particulars of employment to workers.
