Event description

Description

Pat Hicks from ACAS will deliver this session which provides detailed guidance on how to create, agree, vary or terminate employment contracts.

Business need

If you are creating a new position or taking on a new member of staff, ensuring you get the contract exactly right can make the world of difference to both your organisation and your employee. By law all workers are required to be given Terms and Conditions of employment (written statements). Many Employment Tribunal claims arise from poorly drawn up contracts in which terms are not documented properly. Similar scenarios arise from altering or terminating contracts without following proper procedures.

Find out what makes an agreement binding and what an employee is legally entitled to. Gain an understanding of different types of contracts, how to avoid loopholes and communicate policies and procedures that support contracts you’ve written.

Suitable For

Managing Directors, CEOs, board members, team leaders, heads of department, HR professionals and managers with responsibility for preparing, changing or ending contracts – as well as those who oversee adherence to contracts.
