Am I right in saying that even if you are employed with only a "verbal contract" the employer must issue a "Statement of Employment Particulars" after a period of 2 months ?

A 'contract of employment' isn't really a piece of paper - it's how the relationship between an employer and employee is defined. The Employment Rights Act 1996 makes provision for the terms and conditions of employment to be given within two months but that's not the contract.

 

the employees handbook contains "express tems" such as pay, holiday,sick,redundancy

 

then we have "implied terms"

 

All employees, regardless of the number of hours they work per week, are entitled to receive a written statement from their employer within two months of starting work. The statement should describe the main terms of the contract of employment.

Hi Deejay,

 

Have to agree with Squaddie's advice. The right after 2 months is to a written statement of particulars but of course this will not represent the entirety of the contractual agreement between employee and employer.

 

Job Offer, offer letter, employee handbook, verbal statements in interview and of course implied terms can all also form part of the 'contract'.

 

Have you worked for 2 months and not received anything in writing?
