Statement of Terms and Conditions of Employment
Do you have up to date contracts of employment for all your staff?
Under the Employment Rights Act 1996 there is a legal requirement for an employer to issue written details about their main terms and conditions of employment (Statement of Particulars) for all staff within 8 weeks of them joining your business – full time or part-time.
With contracts in place, many businesses compile all their “people policies” into one comprehensive handbook which can also form part of the contract. As legislation changes, so does the amount of information and guidance employers/employees need. Staff Handbooks tell the employee much more about the company including summary details of its personnel and employment policies and procedures. It would typically include things like:
- Maternity/Paternity and Working Parent Policies
- Policies on Age & Retirement
- Smoking, Alcohol and Drugs Policies
- Harassment/Victimisation Policy
With our experience and expertise, we can create and compile an effective Handbook for your business, putting everything into one place and keeping it up to date.

It has been my pleasure to work with Oona Painter and Della Cole for the past few years. In our work we come across many HR Consultants, so selecting one to work within our business was an important decision and one that we had to get just right. Having worked alongside Oona and Della at a mutual client it was not difficult to see that not only were they very professional, knowledgeable and pragmatic, but they also understood the commercial needs of business. It is this that in my view sets them apart, as well as being thoroughly nice people! I would have no hesitation in recommending Painter & Cole, and indeed have done so a number of times with great results.
