   Why have a Contract of Employment? It is a legal requirement for an employer to provide written employment terms to its employees within two months of starting the employment. Having a proper Contract of Employment makes sure you comply with that requirement.A well considered contract of employment would also make it clear exactly what the employee's obligations and responsibilities are so avoiding unnecessary disputes. An employer may need to  protect customer relationships after the employment has ended and restrictions can be included in a contract of employment to try to stop employees taking customers when they leave.Should the employer decide to sell the business, a prospective buyer would expect to see contracts for all the staff and this attention to legal documentation ensures that any third party has the desired perception of the way the business is run.Fresh HR Minds will ensure that an expert works with you to produce a contract of employment specially tailored to the needs of your business.
