You must provide your new employee with a written statement of their particulars of employment within two months.
The statement must include:
names of the employer and employee
date the employment began
where the job is located
hours of work
holiday and sick pay entitlement
a job title and description
details of pay and frequency
any pension provisions
(contact us for a full list of inclusions required)
It's common for this information to be included in a contract of employment. Worth noting is that, if your employee declines to sign their contract of employment, a separate statement with the above information must be issued to comply with the law.
