How do I protect my business when it comes to workers and holiday pay?

If you’re unsure what you need to pay workers who don’t have a written contract, you should review your situation now.

The best way is to speak to us and get solid employment contracts in place.

The potential penalties and costs are significant and it’s not worth taking any risks when it comes to employment law.

If you’ve got a lot of workers who don’t have employment contracts, they still have rights.

Nowadays the employment contract protects the employer much more than it protects the employee.

For example, if you offer employment contracts you can outline certain factors to ensure you are protected as an employer.

That might be notice periods, for example – without a contract, workers can leave with just 1 week’s notice, no matter what their length of service..

It might be that you don’t offer any employment contracts, which means it is just a case of when, not if, you end up in a tribunal.

But you should regularly review the situation with the help of legal experts.
