Employment law in Cambridgeshire


Cambridgeshire is a county in England bordering Lincolnshire, and is one of the oldest and most popular counties in England. Employment law in Cambridgeshire is practised by many of the solicitors in the area and the paperwork for employment law in Cambridgeshire is filed at the Bury St Edmunds Employment Tribunal. This can be found at 100 Southgate Street, Bury St. Edmunds, IP33 2AQ and contacted on0845 795 9775.

To determine your rights, your Cambridgeshire employment lawyer will begin by assessing your employment status in order to ascertain your rights. In deciding this question the law says that the following has to be looked at: does the employer control what work is done? Does the employer control where, when and how the work is done? Does the employer provide holiday and sickness pay? Is the employer taking the financial risk? Is the employer responsible for paying tax and national insurance contributions? If the answers to these questions are yes then you are likely to be an employee with statutory employment rights regardless of what is stated in any employment contract.

It is important that you employer provides you with a contract of employment as any Cambridgeshire employment lawyer will tell you. However, remember that a contract does not necessarily have to be written. An employer must provide an employee with their employment terms within two months of your start date. This is the minimum required by law, and does not protect employers properly. That is why an employment contract is much better for both employers and employees as it will specify the duties and responsibilities of both parties.
