Employment Contract


What things do I need to check in my employment contract?

thanks in advance


Where did you get a job?

Check it all. In particular salary (does it start lower than they said), holiday (is it conditional on certain factors), starting/grace period (is there a period when you can get fired with a week’s notice?), what happens when you leave (do you have to go on gardening leave/will you be able to work for a competitor firm straight away).

But check it all. It is terribly boring, but thoroughly important.

Congratulations :).


Check what the terms are for termination of a contract- will you have to repay training costs? What is the notice period? What happens after your contract ends? What about overtime? That kind of thing.
