Bright Contracts is a software package that has everything you need to create and manage your staff handbook and employment contracts. Getting these in place has traditionally been an expensive, complicated and time-consuming process. Bright Contracts makes it quick and easy.
Without employee contracts in place, an employer is risking large settlements in the case of staff disputes, and fines in the case of regulatory inspections. Having contracts also clearly defines the contractual relationship between you and your employees. Bright Contracts is the easiest way to get sorted.

Price is per user and subject to VAT. Price covers 12 months full use from date of activation.
Bright Contracts is teeming with useful functionality, from the obvious to the obscure. Yet it delivers it all in a neat, easy to use package. You'll wonder how you ever managed without it.
Bright Contracts does not set a limit on the number of employees you can add. And there are no confusing price brackets that depend on the number of employees you have.
Use the suggested content or customise it to your needs. Add pre-defined sections or add your own proprietary sections. Re-arrange as required.
Create a contract for each employee and record when they are signed. Archive old contracts. Base one contract on another for rapid creation.
With full control over cover pages, logos, headers, footers, fonts, colours, and more, you can ensure your documents match your corporate identity, or just simply make them look how you want.
Before you print a handbook or contract, you can see an accurate on-screen preview of how it will look on page. Scroll, zoom and pan controls make it simple and flexible.
An employee is flagged red if he or she does not have a handbook or contract. An employee is flagged amber if he or she has an out of date handbook or soon to expire contract.
The summary screen gives you an overview of handbooks in use, recent handbook updates, who does and doesn't have a handbook, and who does and doesn't have a current signed contract.

On May 9th 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that Part III of the 1946 Industrial Relations Action, which provided the legal basis for Registered Employment Agreements (REAs), is unconstitutional, having regard to the provisions of Article 15.2.1. of the Irish Constitution.
Collective Agreements are agreements concluded between an employer and worker representatives. Employers and workers in any sector or enterprise can agree minimum rates of pay and conditions of employment.
Up to this Supreme Court ruling, they could have the agreement registered with the Labour Court as a Registered Employment Agreement (REA).
REAs were legally binding to the employers and employees in the sector of employment to which the agreement applied.
The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation had previously announced proposals to alter the system of REAs with changes to be introduced in line with other developments.
The ruling does not alter previously negotiated contracts and only applies to future contracts.
