““We used the debt recovery service provided by the NBRA as we were getting nowhere with some longstanding debts. The service was very straightforward and simple to use. Our oldest debt was around 9 months and was over £5k. Ant and the debt recovery service managed to have this paid into our account with 10 days. I don’t really know what they did, but it really worked. I would recommend any member with an old debt to try the NBRA.””

Contracts and Job Specifications

Offering a job with the correct terms is one of the most important (if not the most important) steps any business will take to be successful.  It is important that both of the parties are clear on the express terms of the contract.

There are any number of factors that can affect a worker’s status (and in UK employment law there are different types of workers, form those categorised as “workers”, employees (the majority of the workforce), and arrangements under which individuals are genuinely self employed). This, in turn, will influence the document needed.

It is a legal requirement that employees are issued with a ‘written statement of principal terms and conditions’ within the first two months of employment.  In this section there is an example of such a document and variety of other contracts. There are also some industry specific employee job descriptions, for members to use as templates.

Although the details required in the statement above are mandatory in law, more complex and lengthy express terms may, or may not, be necessary depending on the type of worker/employee and the sophistication of the business.  Ultimately, as with all precedents, it is important that you review them and adapt them to suit your business needs. Take advice from our legal helpline, if you are unsure, when drafting terms of the contract.

Handbooks

Any business can reasonably define the rules and policies it wishes to follow, and provided businesses stay within the law, then the extent and complexity of the handbook’s policies and procedures is often a matter of individual taste.

In this section we provide examples of long form comprehensive handbook and a short form handbook, which may be preferred by smaller businesses.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli.
