    you do not have to have specific sign contract. however they should issue you with a letter of employment detailing your basic rights, your pay amount, working hours, breaks, notice period, holidays etc, you should also be given a copy of the staff hand book detailing rights to holiday, any sick leaves right, pensions, and all things like disaplinary action. but a signed contract of employment is not required

    'An employment contract, or ‘contract of employment’, is an agreement between an employer and an employee which sets out their employment rights, responsibilities and duties. These are called the ‘terms' of the contract.


    Your employment contract doesn’t have to be in writing. However, you are entitled to a written statement of your main employment terms within two months of starting work.

    The employment contract is made as soon as you accept a job offer. If you start work it will show that you accepted the job on the terms offered by the employer, even if you don’t know what they are. Having a written contract could cut out disputes with your employer at a later date, and will help you understand your employment rights.

    You and your employer are bound to the employment contract until it ends (usually by giving notice) or until the terms are changed (usually in an agreement between you and your employer).'
