The current legislation around receiving your written terms and conditions of employment is that you must receive this within two months of starting work

Plus, this applies to “employees” at the moment.

From the 6th April 2020 the government is extending the right to receive a written statement of employment particulars to all “workers” and from day one of employment.

Whilst most of us incorporate the issuing of contracts or a written statement of employment particulars into our offer and induction procedures to ensure clarity at this early stage, this will become law from April 2020.

As such, for those not already doing so, now is the time to get into the habit to ensure no hiccups when the legislation is introduced.
