Jargon buster

A contract of employment can be a difficult document to understand, particularly if it’s the first formal contract a young person has received.

To help you tackle this, we have worked with 16-24 year olds to identify some of the most confusing words or phrases that commonly appear in contracts of employment.

Our jargon buster provides definitions and further information, and can form part of the welcome pack you send to new starters.

This document is available in both PDF and Word.
