The right to a written statement
Anyone legally classed as an employee or worker has the right to a 'written statement of employment particulars'.
A written statement summarises the main terms of employment, such as pay and working hours.
Those legally classed as workers do not have the right to a written statement if they started the job before 6 April 2020.
Many people think this document is the employment contract, but legally the contract is much broader than the written statement.
Agency workers have the same right to a written statement as other workers and employees.
