Employment contracts are a legal necessity setting out in detail the relationship and expectations between employers and employees. This model contract can be used for permanent employees or fixed-term, temporary employees. The contract covers key areas such as pay, benefits, hours, holiday, sickness and termination.
The contract was written by Co-operatives UK and is based on Co-operative contracts. However, the contract complies with all statutory regulations imposed under the Employment Rights Act 1996 and is therefore beneficial to all small and medium size employers.
