If you're an employer in England, Wales or Scotland, you must give certain information in a written statement to all of your workers and employees by the time they start working for you.
This employment statement contains that information - use it if you don't plan to give them some form of employment/worker agreement, or if it won't be ready by the time they start working for you.
If you're an employer in Northern Ireland, you only need to give this statement to employees (and only if you aren't giving them an employment agreement). You have up to 2 months after they start working for you.
Use this statement in combination with our employee handbook (or you own) in order to refer to details of your policies and procedures around grievances, disciplinary and dismissal, and paid leave.
