Paperwork: Contract of Employment for a PA
It is a legal requirement that as an employer, you must give your employees a document stating the main conditions of employment when they start work. This is often known as a ‘written statement of employment particulars.’ This must include the ‘principle statement’ and a ‘wider statement.’ More details on the requirements can be found via the Gov.uk resource link.
Your local independent support project may be able to assist you to develop a person-centred job description to go with the contract of employment (containing the legally required information) and we recommend you have your insurance indemnifier check your employment paperwork as you may not be covered by your insurer if you don’t.
