There are over 40 pieces of major legislation governing the employment relationship. The most prominent of these pieces of legislation will normally be addressed and satisfied by issuing your staff with detailed, specific and compliant contracts of employment.

Under the Terms of Employment (Information) Acts 1994 – 2014, employees must be furnished with a contract of employment within two months of starting employment. Similarly, under the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2018, employees must receive a written statement of their 5 core terms of employment within 5 days of starting employment.

At Boyd HR, we specialise in providing comprehensive, tailored Contracts of Employment that will give both you and your staff peace of mind that you are in compliance with the legislation. Boyd HR can also provide written statements of the 5 core terms well within the timeframe of 5 days, provided the appropriate notice is given.

Employment legislation is ever-changing and for Business Owners, it is not possible to expect that you can keep abreast of these changes. If your organisation has issued contracts of employment to its staff years in the past, it is highly likely that these contracts are now outdated and do not contain the most up-to-date and relevant information relating to the employee’s terms and conditions.

If this is the case for your business, why not have Boyd HR conduct a thorough review and update of your employment contracts. With this, we keep the contracts in the style, layout and format that the organisation and its staff are used to, but update any information that is now out-dated due to changes in legislation, issue status change notices to any staff who have had amendments to the terms and conditions, correct any factual inaccuracies and add any relevant information that may have been missing.
