When is a contract of employment given to the employee?

A contract of employment should be given to an applicant when the employer makes the offer of employment to the employee. Time should be allowed for the employee to consider the content, and it should be signed by both the employer (a representative of your management committee/owner) and the employee.

A copy must be given to the employee for their own record and another copy should be kept on record at your service in the employee’s file.
