IDS Employment Law Handbook Contracts of Employment examines the tests for establishing employment status, including the definition of an "employee" and other categories of worker. It looks at the content of employment contracts, including express, implied, incorporated and statutory terms; covers employers’ obligation to provide employees with a written statement of employment particulars; sets out the circumstances in which courts will refuse to enforce an agreement, such as void terms, sham contracts and illegal contracts; deals with garden leave and restrictive covenants; analyses termination of contract, including express dismissal, constructive dismissal, expiry of a fixed-term; and considers breach of contract and remedies for breach, including injunctions, calculation of damages and the duty to mitigate loss.
