    WORKINGPARTNERS GB

    Christine Thomas has been working asHR Manager in the Corporate World forover 20 years, and has vast experience of employment related issues.

    A Certified NLP Practitioner, and DiSCPractitioner, Christine now runs herown business, Working Partners gb, to help small employers improve their business by developing self-awareness, other-awareness and

    situation awareness and by reducing the number of employeerelated issues.

    Christine is also a professional networker.

    Are you ready to consider bringing your first employee intoyour business? Or do you already have employees?

    One of the concerns most often brought to me is about theContract of Employment so I have collated the most oftenasked questions:

    Q. As a small employer do I have to have employment contracts in place?

    A. A contract is that which was agreed an offer and an acceptance. It does not have to be in writing to be a contract, however every employer is required to producea Statement of Terms and Conditions of Employment foreach employee, and this is often referred to as the contract.

    Q. What information has to be included?

    A. There is a requirement to include certain basic detail, suchas hours of work, rate and frequency of pay, holiday entitlement, etc. The Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA)sets out the detail.

    Q. What are the consequences of not having a statement of Terms and Conditions?

    A. Well if your employees are not clear about the details oftheir employment it can lead to misunderstandings on bothsides and ultimately may cause a problem serious enoughfor the employee to make a claim to the Employment Tribunal (ET). If the terms are clearly set out then everyoneunderstands and there is unlikely to be any future dispute.If a claim for a different issue were made to the ET andthe employee had not been provided with this Statementthe Tribunal is bound to make an award against the employer equal to two or four weeks pay, according to thecircumstances.

    Q. Is there a time limit by when this statement should be issued?

    A. Yes, the employee is entitled to receive it within 8 weeksof starting the employment, however it does not have tobe issued during the first four weeks, although most employers issue it as part of an induction programme. TIP:Always prepare two copies and ask the employee to signboth so that a signed copy is retained to show it has beenissued.

    You can find out more information by visiting www.gov.uk orcontacting ACAS, or if you have particular queries relating toemployment please e-mail workingpartnersgb@uwclub.net.

    A Sample of our Customer Feedback

    Justin - B74

    We are really impressed with the quality of work provided by ASG Electrical.We needed the entire house to be rewired and expected this to be a messyjob which was concerning as we have a 9 month old baby and there was noprospect of us moving out whilst the job was being completed. Every day wereturned from work to find that ASG had left the house tidy and we couldaccess all of our facilities without a problem. We would definitely recommendthem to family and friends. Thank you !!

    Alan - CV9

    ASG replaced our old fuseboard with a new Consumer Unit containingMinature Circuit Breakers, replaced all our old sockets and switches andchecked all the wiring. They were prompt and did a superb job. They cleanedup behind themselves and left the house spotless. Great value for money.
