  2. 2. Contracts <br />In the working world there are many different contract types and agreements that employees and employers have to do.<br />An employment contract, or ‘contract of employment’, is an agreement between an employer and an employee which sets out their employment rights, responsibilities and duties. These are called the ‘terms' of the contract.Your employment contract doesn’t have to be in writing. However, you are entitled to a written statement of your main employment terms within two months of starting work. The employment contract is made as soon as you accept a job offer. If you start work it will show that you accepted the job on the terms offered by the employer, even if you don’t know what they are. Having a written contract could cut out disputes with your employer at a later date, and will help you understand your employment rights.You and your employer are bound to the employment contract until it ends (usually by giving notice) or until the terms are changed (usually in an agreement between you and your employer).<br />

However it is important to note that legal information must be used with a degree of caution. <br />Users must be aware that whilst an Act or Statutory Instrument (SI) may still be in force, parts may have been superseded by later legislation or completely withdrawn. If you use a printed or online version of an Act or Statutory Instrument this will generally be in the form that it was originally produced. <br />Any withdrawn or amended sections will still be contained within the Act or SI and there will be nothing in the document to identify those sections that no longer apply. <br />There are several solutions which you can try:<br />seek advice from HSE Info line. <br />seek independent legal advice<br />
