How do you introduce new contracts to existing employees who have no written contracts?

The employer should make it clear to the employees that a written agreement on basic terms and conditions is legally necessary as is a written agreement on the dismissal procedure. The legislation governing this was introduced to increase the protection for the employees. The written contract and handbook simply clarifies the employment relationship. The employer is obliged to provide the written terms and conditions of employment even if the employee is refusing to sign it.

Please be advised that we do not provide a HR consultancy service and if a dispute persists the employer may need external advice.
