Employment contract: standard for any employee

A complete contract of employment that balances strong protection for the employer organisation and a fair, transparent, deal for the employee.

The employee may be:

  • in any position below director level
  • full time, part time or temporary

The contract is suitable for any type of organisation.

The document provides an option for a trial period (sometimes called a probation period). In law, having a probation period does not change the rights of either the employee or the employer during or after the trial - the benefits of inclusion are motivation during the first months and fostering of goodwill if the employment doesn't work as expected.

Fixed term employment contract

This is a comprehensive document for any organisation that employs staff on fixed term contracts.

It provides a superb framework for fair, full and easily understood protection of the employer and compliance with organisational and legal requirements.

A fixed term contract "does what it says", expiring after the term ends. However, the employer must still comply with all employment law, including that relating to dismissal. The difference is only that the expiry of a fixed term employment contract is a "reasonable reason" to dismiss someone who might otherwise claim that the dismissal was unfair.

If the term is for two years or longer, the employer must also follow the law relating to redundancy.whether for projects, seasonal increases in work or to cover full-time employees on leave.

Use this document for:

  • short-term cover for another employee who is temporarily unavailable, for example, on maternity leave, a sabbatical, secondment or long term sickness
  • cover for seasonal demand, for example in retail and agriculture
  • workers for a specific project, for example in the film, construction and event management industries

The size or business of the employer organisation is not important, nor is the position of the employee. Specifics for different jobs, such as duties, can be added easily, either within the existing text, or by reference to a job description.
