An employment contract is a legal relationship between an employee and their employer.

Our employment team are regularly asked to advise on employment status (employee, worker, or self-employed). This is important as it will affect your legal rights and what you are entitled to. Legal action can be taken regarding a failure to provide a written statement of employment particulars.
