Recruitment documents ❭ Contract of employment document templates
Contracts (or Terms and Conditions of Employment) serve as the legal basis for employment. Before you issue them, make sure that you can stand behind their contents. They are, after all, legally binding and you should be fully satisfied that the terms and conditions you have spelled out for the new employee are exactly what they should be.
Apprenticeship agreement letter template
An apprenticeship agreement is signed by the employer and apprentice before the start of the programme and outlines key details about the apprenticeship.

Employers must provide their workers and employees with their written statement on or before their first day of employment, no matter how long they're employed for.
The written statement must include details about the hours and days of the week the worker or employee is required to work, and whether they may be varied and how, entitlements to any paid leave, any other benefits not covered elsewhere in the written statement, any probationary period, and any training provided by the employer.
Working time opt out agreement letter template
By law an employee cannot work more than an average 48 hours a week, unless either they agree to work more hours (known as 'opting out' of the weekly limit). They can do this by signing a written agreement, known as an 'opt-out agreement'.
This agreement should be separate from the employment contract.
The employee does not have to agree to opting out of the legal limit. The employer should not treat the employee any differently if they do not opt out.
