Issues covered:

Employers are required by law to provide all employees, within two months of commencing employment, a written statement of employment particulars, more commonly known as a contract of employment. The contract of employment should set out a wide range of particulars concerning the employment, for example, the date when employment began, remuneration, holiday entitlement and holiday pay, incapacity and any relevant pension schemes.
