(no sign-up required)

This template employment contract is drafted in accordance with the Employment Rights Act and is required for the employment of any individual within a business. The employment contract template sets out the key specifics of the job, for example the job title, salary, place of work and hours, as well as a range of more descriptive details of the employment, for example employee duties, holidays and sickness standards, and reasons for termination. The contract has recently been updated to include provisions for automatic enrollment under the Pensions Act.

The template employment contract also contains a number of detailed sections for good practice, for example a full code of ethics and restrictions on outside work to limit conflicts of interest, a detailed confidentiality section, rules and conduct for the use of IT and mobile equipment, health and safety requirements, and many other provisions. This employment contract, which is downloadable immediately without sign-up, can be easily edited or expanded for any alternate or additional requirements.
