What types of Contracts of Employment?
A contract of employment should be in writing, and might be in two or more documents:
- Employment contract – with your own specific terms and conditions; and
- Employee handbook – also called an office manual setting out things relevant to the wider business, some of which might form part of your contract of employment.

How to write an employee Handbook?
Well, we would say so, but let QLAW help! And, keep your office manual under review, it forms the backbone of staff policies throughout your organisation big or small.
We regularly work with business owners and HR teams to come up with an employee handbook that is bespoke to them and their business.
Employee Handbook Template?
Yes of course, as it might be part of an employee’s contract of employment, there is a ‘tick list’ of things you would expect an employee handbook to cover. And so, whilst we will often start with some form of office manual template, the value we can give your HR team or business owner is an employee handbook that ends up bespoke to your business and your employees.
Contract of Employment Template?
As with the employee handbook, whilst template contracts of employment are a safe starting point, the key to a great contract of employment is for our expert employment law solicitors to provide you with bespoke contracts that are right for your business, industry, and employees.
Why are Employment Contracts important?
They bind both employer and employee and so protect both in the event of a breach of employment contract or dispute at work. This is why the law requires basic terms and conditions to be issued to all employees at the start of employment.
How are Contracts of Employment established?
The main contract of employment between employer and employee should be signed by both. The contract will generally reference the employee handbook especially if the handbook contains contractual terms.
When should I be given an Employment Contract?
An employee (or worker) should be given an employment contract containing certain basic terms and conditions no later than their first day of employment. Some terms can be provided later, but it’s good practice to have them all in one place.
