Employment guidance notes

These Guidance Notes offer an outline of the relevant legal provisions, but they are not comprehensive and should not be relied on as authoritative. Specific advice should be obtained on any particular issues.

The Guidance Notes deal with general employment topics and do not cover all categories of employee or types of employment, particularly senior executives with Service Agreements.
