Good employment practices and a positive work environment are imperative to any successful enterprise, and anything less will undermine all the good and hard work elsewhere. No matter how large or small your business, employees must be your priority.” Staggeringly, 75% of those in part-time or zero hours position stated they do not have a written contract. This is a stark figure and the British Grooms Association (BGA) and Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) are using the Good Employment Week 2023 to inform employers and employees to wise up.
It is a legal requirement for all employers to provide a written statement of the terms of employment, (often referred to as a ‘written contract’), on or before employment begins. The research identified that 63% of those who had not been given one had been in employment for over one year.
The Equestrian Employers Association offers support to all the employer’s who ‘put their hand up’, the online tools available to create not only contracts, but other necessary documents such as the staff handbook and Health & Safety Risk Assessments.
