I would check if I was you as I am not to sure but I thought companies by law had to supply you with one. Try the CAB to find out.

I don't have one either.

Nor do any of the other lads.

Pros: Come and go as you please.

Cons: Don't get paid when you don't work. No job security as such.

As I understand it - for full time permanent employees a contract is a legal requirement. However, they never protect the employee - just the employer. However, all these dunces who brag that they got a contract but haven't signed it so aren't bound - they are wrong. Even if you do not sign it, the fact that you continue to work for the company is acceptance of their contract and terms of employment regardless.

if you are being paid by an employer then you have a contract written or not.

Discuss your hours ,length of contract etc ,then Shake hands with whoever sets you on ,if its all done on the phone then site foreman or senior person then if you dont get your dosh or get pumped or trashed in any way ,you at least have a leagaly binding contract ,use it as a trick if theres no writen contract forthcoming ,it will stand up in court if the company wants to go that far
sometimes you will still get shafted ,thats the nature of the game
all the very very best inthis happy old world

Current employment law states that whilst a job description can be oral, written or a combination of both, however, a written statement of employment should be provided within 2 months of start of employment.
Google one of the government employment sites under 'employment law' (no inverted commas)
Hope that helps.

Hi Bane
If you are legally employed by your employer you should have a written statement of employment. See my previous post above.
If your employer allows you to come and go as you please - wording to that effect (Flexible hours......but paid for X hours a week {flexible)
If you are classified as an 'employee' then you do have rights to minimum paid holidays, sick pay & rights of notice to terminate your employment.
Ask for the Statement that you are legally entitled to !
