Hotel staff were entitled to statement of rights after first month of work, tribunal rules

Three hotel employees were entitled to a statement of their employment conditions within their first month of work, the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) has ruled, in a finding legal experts said was “revolutionary” for sectors with a high turnover of staff.

The ruling, if upheld, could alter the existing understanding of how soon employees should receive formal notification of their rights, which stands at two months.
