Contracts and terms and conditions - Acas business solutions

We can visit your organisation to help you understand what needs to be done to address a range of issues related to contracts and hours and then work with you to develop practical solutions.

We can help you with developing terms and conditions of employment and we can help with introducing shift systems, flexible working and annualised hours. Acas also helps organisations effectively manage the HR implications of acquisitions or mergers.
