Further important provisions of the Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Act 1993 come into force tomorrow. These are described in detail in revised Employment Department guidance booklets published this week, and outlined in the comprehensive Guide to the Act available since the end of August.

In particular, from tomorrow: all employees working eight hours a week or more for one month or more will have the right to receive, within two months of starting work, a comprehensive written statement of their employment particulars, including full details of their pay, hours and holiday entitlement; employees working between eight and 16 hours a week (except in firms with fewer than 20 employees) will have the same right as those working longer hours to receive itemised pay statements.

Employment Minister Michael Forsyth said: 'These provisions significantly extend and enhance employees' entitlement to receive written information about their terms of employment. It is only right that employees should in general be provided individually with full particulars of such fundamental matters as their pay, hours and holiday entitlement.
