Use this agreement to create a fixed-term employment contract for a new employee. You can set the employment to end on a particular date, when a particular event occurs or when a particular task is complete.
It includes options for part-time and shift working, probation, working hours, breaks, overtime, workplace locations (including working abroad), salary, bonuses, benefits, annual leave, sick leave, pensions, data protection, termination (including post-termination restrictions), and more.
It also includes detailed disciplinary and grievance procedures as optional attachments.
If you're an employer in England, Wales or Scotland, you must give certain information in a written statement to new employees by the time they start working for you. This agreement contains that information. In Northern Ireland, you have up to 2 months after they start.
Use this agreement in combination with our employee handbook (or you own) in order to refer to details of your policies and procedures (e.g. about different types of paid leave).
