I would realy like a clear guide / definition as to what constitutes a contractual right and what is a non contractual element of employment of staff?

I understand that non contractual aspects can be changed more easily. But how do I ascertain what is / should be contractual and what isn’t /
doesn’t need to be?

How does this tie in with what is written in your statement of employment particulars & the company / employee handbook?

Also how does it relate to company policies and procedures – for example we have a zero tolerance on harassment policy – is this / can it / should it be a contractual right or not?

Any help gratefully receved!

Many thanks

Sam Cowsill
