WHY HAVE I BEEN GIVEN A NEW CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT?
We have updated our contract of employment to reflect some new benefits available to employees, such as pensions and gap pay. The key items relating to your employment, how you are paid (how much you are paid), where you work etc all remain unchanged.
I ONLY JOINED A SHORT PERIOD AGO, WHY HAVE I GOT A NEW CONTRACT ALREADY?
For administrative ease, we pick a date upon which we change the contracts for all employees and so we capture everyone working with us on that date and use a new contract for new employees joining us from that date onwards.
WHY HAVE I BEEN GIVEN A CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT?
You have been given a contract of employment as you are becoming an employee of +Us and in doing so, +Us are legally required to provide you with a written statement of the terms of your employment with us.
There are a number of items contained in the contract of employment which have been inserted to comply with the law. For example, there is paragraph in relation to Collective Agreements. Whereas others, such as the paragraph relating to Insurances, have been added to enable you to understand what you need to do as a +Us employee.
