Contracts of Employment

This section looks at both what a contract of employment legally has to include and also what we would recommend covering to protect your business, for example confidentiality provisions, restrictive covenants, the right to suspend an employee etc.

There are drafting notes on all the clauses to be read with the example contract of employment. The contract can be adapted for all types of employees, including fixed-term employees and those working on job-share, annualised hours and homeworking contracts.

Although employment law is essentially the same throughout the UK, there are a few contractual differences between Scotland and England to be aware of.
