What are express terms?

The terms that are explicitly agreed between the employer and employee are called express terms. These terms may be written in a number of different documents, such as the employment contract, job advertisement or employee handbook.

Express terms include the rate of pay, including bonus or overtime pay; how much notice the employer will give to the employee if they are dismissed; the employee’s hours of work; the rate of sick and redundancy pay; and holiday entitlement and pay.
