Not The Standard For HR Teams To Measure Themselves Against…11 June 2010
In a Which? survey of over 4,000 members of the British public, only three in ten employees received their contract before starting their job, and nine per cent didn’t get a contract until they’d been in the post for six months or more.
Furthermore only 26 per cent of workers only skim read their employment contracts, while six per cent admitted to not having read them at all.
On extrapolation the figures suggest at least two million workers in Britain do not have an employment contract and at least 5.1m workers fail to read their employment contracts properly.
