This template Contract of Employment is provided to assist JIB member companies in meeting their legal responsibilities under s.1 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA), and provides an easy reference to the key terms and conditions of employment for operatives and apprentices.
It is best practice to provide this, or a wider contract of employment, to the employee or apprentice shortly after they are engaged and, at the latest, within two months of starting with the company. This is the basic template. A company may wish to add further information or further policies to this template as necessary.
