Hi, I work in Australia but also look after the recuitment of a team in the UK. The company provides employees "terms and Conditions of employment" as well as a Section One statement – both are provided at point of offering the position. In reading the T+C’s and the Section One statement, they essentially say the say thing, with the T+C’s just being much more detailed than the section One Statement. When I asked why we provide both, I was advsied that we need to provide a Section One statement as per the Employment Rights Act.

Can anyone clarify if both documents are required, or if the T+C’s are sufficient as long as they cover the employment particulars as per legislation.

Any help is appreciated!
