Cloud HR Platforms – Making Compliance as simple as 1,2,3

As an employer, when it comes to your new employees, you must give a written statement of 5 core terms of employment within 5 days of starting employment (also known as a Day 5 Statement).

These 5 terms are:

  • The full name of employer and employee
  • The address of the employer
  • The expected duration of the employment contract
  • The method of calculating or rate of pay
  • The expected normal working day and week

Employees must receive the remaining terms in writing within 2 months of starting work. Penalties for non-compliance are up to €5,000 fine and in extreme cases a potential prison sentence!

Nowadays, you don’t have to worry about how to get documents to your new employees. There is an easier, more powerful way to share your employee contracts. Thanks to Cloud HR Platforms, compliance is as easy as 1,2,3!

  1. Create a contract of employment for your new employee, making sure to include the core terms of employment. 
  2. Ensure that your new employee has access to the employee portal for your company’s Cloud HR Platform 
  3. Upload their completed contract to the Cloud and move on to getting to know your new hire!

That’s it! You are now fully compliant, following best practice recommendations and safe in the knowledge that your employees have received the information you need them to have!
