  • A written statement of terms and conditions of employment
  • A written statement of pay or ‘payslip’
  • A minimum wage
  • A maximum working week 
  • Unpaid breaks during working hours
  • Annual leave from work 
  • A minimum amount of notice before termination of employment 
  • The maintenance of records in relation to their employees and their entitlements
