The basis of any good working relationship between the employer and employee is the Terms and Conditions of Employment or Contract of Employment. This sets out what the employer and employee can expect from the working relationship. Under the Employment Rights Act 1996 each employee is entitled to a statement of particulars such as a contract within the first eight weeks of their employment.
