What agreement for which employee?

What agreement for which employee?

Managing staff is complex, but getting it right in the first place is crucial. Ensuring employees start their role on the correct employment agreement is one of the most straightforward ways to ensure they are receiving minimum requirements and being utilised most effectively in the business.

This infographic outlines the different employment options and the best times to use each different type of agreement. Download the infographic as pdf here and see below for other important information.



Employers should also consider some risks in implementing each agreement such as:

  • Salaried agreements for an annual amount include any additional hours that the employee is required to work over and above the standard hours of employment
  • Waged agreements require payment for all hours worked
  • It’s not a good idea to have a person on a low rate on a salary due to the danger of going below minimum wage if they work additional hours
  • It is essential to guarantee minimum wage for all hours worked
  • If minimum hours for part time employees are too low, availability compensation may need to be considered
  • Fixed term is not to be used to trial people (use 90 day trial on most appropriate agreement)

To ensure the foundations are right for employees at the start of their employment, employers should contact Employsure on 0800 675 700.
