Sometimes an employee is entitled to something because it's in their contract. They can be called 'enhanced' or 'contractual' entitlements.
Do not use these terms without explaining them.
When to use these patterns
Use these patterns to explain when an employee's contract might include:
- more than the statutory (legal minimum) amount for something, for example maternity pay, holiday entitlement or notice periods
- a non-statutory extra, for example paid compassionate leave, a bonus or commission
Pattern: when there's a statutory amount
It might be written in the contract that [employees/workers/you] get more than statutory [pay/leave/notice period]. This can be called 'enhanced' or 'contractual' [pay/leave/notice period].
Example in content
It might be written in your contract that you get more than statutory paternity leave. This can be called 'enhanced' or 'contractual' paternity leave.
Pattern: when it's a non-statutory extra
The employer might offer contractual [pay/leave/bonus/commission]. Contractual means it's something agreed and included in [your/the employee's] contract or written terms.
