With effect from 6 April 2020, all employees and workers are entitled to receive a written statement of particulars of employment from the employer on day one of employment.

Any employee or worker who has not been given a statement, or who thinks a statement given is incorrect or incomplete, may complain to an employment tribunal within three months of the employer’s failure to provide the statement.

Contract terms can be implied, express or discretionary. This topic explains the legal meaning of those terms and explains both the employers’ and employees’ duties with regard to the fulfilment of common law and contractual obligations. What happens if an employee complains about their contractual terms to an employment tribunal is also covered.
