Having effective employment documentation is vital for every business. Meaningful employment documentation allows everyone in a company; employers, employees and managers, to know what is expected of them and how relationships within the business will be handled. Paul Murray, HR Consultant has over 20 years experience working with a wide range of companies small and large across Manchester, West Yorkshire and North West England.
"Too often I have seen minor employment issues spiral out of control simply because employers and employees did not have a common basis of understanding. Having effective employment documentation means everyone knows where they stand if differences do arise. Good documentation can mean issues are dealt with quick and simply, allowing everyone to get on with their work." Paul Murray - HR Consultant

Apart from the statutory obligation to provide in writing the basic terms of employment, for there is a legal penalty to fail to provide documents within 8 weeks of starting. The absence or lack of details in the relationship can cause disproportionate problems later on in the employment. It is a common misunderstanding, for instance, to believe that the tradition of bank holidays is a statutory right, and in addition to any other holidays, which, of course, they are not. To have this properly explained in your holiday entitlements section takes away the ambiguity. The same applies to (for instance) bereavement leave, so, make it clear in writing.
