The Department of Labour and Pensions is reminding employers that employment contracts should be provided to each employee. Where contracts of employment have been issued, the employer should also furnish a written statement of working conditions within ten working days of employment. This rule applies to all persons except a casual employee or a household domestic. Employers are also reminded that every employer who employs ten or more persons must keep an accurate work account in respect of each employee which records: his/her time worked (by pay periods), his/her leave taken (by type), and the basic and other wages paid to him/her for each pay period. Business owners who need assistance or guidance completing an employee contract can contact the Department of Labour & Pensions, located on the 2nd floor of Mid Town Plaza on Elgin Avenue. The department is open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday; telephone: 945-8960, fax: 945-8961, confidential hotline for labour and pension complaints: 945-3073. (GIS)
