Casual Workers Contract

As of April 2020, it has been a legal requirement that all new members of staff receive an employment contract on or before their start date. This includes casual workers who work on an adhoc basis, seasonal workers and staff on zero-hour contracts. Employment contracts ensure that staff operate effectively and professionally, and also help in avoiding unnecessary misunderstandings and disputes. Whilst it is important that your business interests are protected, it is vital that your employment contracts are legally compliant.

For a one time fixed-fee, I will draft a Contract for Casual Workers based on your requirements and as specified below.

Who this service is for
