From 6 April 2020, your employer must give you a written statement of particulars from day one (previously employers had to supply this within two months of employment).
Your particulars should explain your pay, working hours and other rights and responsibilities. This applies to both employees and workers. The written particulars are not in themselves a contract of employment but will include your main conditions of employment. Most employers convert this into a written contract.
Check the written statement carefully and discuss any issues with your employer.
Written statement of particulars prior to 6 April 2020
If you started your job before 6 April 2020, you can ask your employer for written terms that meet the new requirements. You must still be working for your employer or be within 3 months of your leaving date.
The employer must provide the written terms that meet the new requirements within 1 month.
If you have not received your written statement of particulars
Talk to your employer about it. If this does not resolve the matter, contact us for further advice.
