New Changes to Employment Contracts/Section 1 Statements From 6 April 2020 (UK)

    View Author November 2019
    All employees and workers who start work on or after 6 April 2020 will be entitled to receive a “section 1 statement”, containing certain key information about their terms and conditions of employment/engagement.

    Although these new provisions only apply to people starting work on or after 6 April 2020, many employers are already starting to review their contracts to ensure they contain the required information. Now is also a useful opportunity to carry out a more general review and update of your template contracts to ensure they provide your business with the right protection.
