An employment contract exists the moment an employee accepts a job offer regardless of whether you provide a written employment contract or not.
In addition to any written job offer, the terms of the employment contract can be affected other employment documents (such as a job description), a verbal agreement or by employment practice.
You must ensure your employment contract does not override an employee's statutory rights (such as the right to a minimum wage, sick pay or certain types of leave). You should seek tailored legal advice about employment contracts.
