Contracts and written statements


This half day event will provide support and guidance on how to create, agree, vary and terminate a contract of employment, informing you of the legal thresholds and good practice.

Business need

From 6 April 2020, there are changes to the rules around written statements. What are they, and what does your organisation need to do to get it right?

As an employer, you must ensure that your workers and employees are given terms at the right time, in the right way, and in accordance with your business needs. 

Our trainers will be on hand to talk you through the different types of contracts, the legal issues surrounding them, the key legal changes around written statements, how to vary and terminate contracts in line with the law and what good practice might look like for your business.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
