Whether written or verbal, a contract of employment should clearly explain your rights and responsibilities as an employee as well as stating the conditions of your employment, such as working hours, holiday entitlement and pay.

At QS Lawrence Hamblin, we provide advice on all aspects of contracts of employment. Perhaps you’ve been asked to sign a contract that you don’t understand or maybe you’re worried about changes your employer is making to an existing contract. Whatever the situation, it’s important to remember that even if you don’t sign a contract, you are still assumed to have accepted the terms by accepting a job offer. So it’s important to ensure you understand a contract and are happy with the terms before starting a job.
