The contract of employment or the written statement should
specify the contractual benefits to which the employee is entitled. However,
because the full details of the policy on a particular benefit may be too
lengthy to set out in the contract of employment, or the policy may be subject
to regular change, the contract may refer to a separate detailed document
setting out the full policy and terms. This should always be available on
request, and employees should be consulted or at the very least notified in
advance of any changes.
Employers may also provide benefits to employees that they intend to be non-contractual. If referring to benefits in a document such as a staff handbook, employers should make clear which benefits are contractual and which are not.
