Employment Contract Advisory Service (ECAS)

On this page you will find information about:

  • Employment Contract Advisory Service (ECAS)
  • Help with reviewing contracts
  • Advice and guidance on negotiating terms

Should you be offered a contract of employment or a contract that requires you to provide personal service, you are recommended to contact your Regional Office.

We can arrange for a specialist employment lawyer to review it and provide you with appropriate advice on the contract as part of our Contract Advisory Service. Our lawyers will also provide you with practical advice and guidance should you wish to negotiate better terms with your employer. 

NB: All employees, irrespective of the number of hours they work, are entitled to a written statement of their main terms and conditions of employment within two months of starting work.
