URGENT: Changes to Employment Statements from 6 April 2020

03 March 2020

There are significant changes in employment law coming into force on 6 April 2020 and these changes will require you to review your:

  • statements of terms of employment
  • template contracts
  • current practices.

The changes include:

  1. Employers must give all workers (not just employees) a statement of terms and conditions.

  2. The statement must be issued on day 1 of engagement (not within the first two months).

  3. The statement must include additional details.

If you fail to provide a statement, or provide one which is inaccurate or incomplete, you could be faced with a tribunal claim, and potential compensation, for an error that could have been easily avoided.

To find out more about these changes, read our blog here: Changes to Employment Statements from 6 April 2020

BTO’s Employment Law team would be happy to review your practices and template statements/contracts to ensure compliance from 6 April 2020.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Laura Salmond, Partner, in the first instance: / 0141 221 8012.
