Statement of Particulars
A statement of particulars is a list of the most basic terms at the heart of an employment contract. An employee has a right to have these basic terms set out in writing. The list is in fact set out in the Employment Rights Act 1996.
Whilst employees have the right to have terms given to them in writing, most employers feel that merely setting out this list is not good enough and wish for the additional protections set out in a comprehensive contract of employment.
