Changes to Contracts of Employment
From 6 April 2020, your contracts of employment must contain the following information (as well as the previous information that was legally required):
- the days of the week the worker is required to work, whether the days and working hours may be variable and how any variation will be determined;
- any paid leave to which the worker is entitled (for example maternity leave);
- details of any other benefits provided by the employer (for example health insurance, childcare vouchers etc);
- any probationary period, including any conditions and its duration; and
- any training entitlement provided by the employer, including whether any training is mandatory and/or must be paid for by the worker.
