Q: “We have agreed to allow two of our employees to work part-time on a job-share arrangement. We feel we should set out the arrangement in a contract. What should we include?”
A: Each employee must be given a contract or statement that meets the requirements of the Employment Rights Act. In addition you may like to include:
- The hours each will work.
- The time they will overlap to hand over.
- What they must do during the overlap.
- How they will communicate with each other
- How the employer will communicate with them.
- The extent to which they will cover for each other's absence through sickness or holiday.
- What will happen if one of them leaves, for example will you give the other opportunity to go full time
- How you will organise training.
- Exactly what each will be required to do, for example will different responsibilities be allocated to each person?
