Why is it important to provide my employees with a contract of employment that abides by UK law as I am not sure whether I need to do this for my business in Bradford?
If you have provided an employee with written terms of their employment you do not technically need to draft a contract of employment however businesses that do are less likely to be involved in expensive legal action. This is because employees understand what their job role encompasses how to raise a complaint within the organisation and what behaviour warrants disciplinary action. This can lead to a well-run and productive workforce with the chances of employees taking a claim against your business reduced dramatically.
You may have noticed recently in the news the discussion over zero hour contracts. An article which was published in the Guardian on 28 July 2013 discusses a well-known retailer who provides most of its employees with these types of contracts. A particular section of the article reads ?Sports Direct’s entire 20000 part-time workforce are employed on zero hour contracts at a time when 2000 full-time staff are about to cash in bonuses of up to œ100000. The contracts and that 90% of the company’s 23000 employees leave staff not knowing how many hours they will work from one week to the next with no sick pay or holiday pay and no guarantee of regular work.? This is a growing issue within the UK with the government currently discussing the concerns raised over these types of contracts.
