What is it?

Bright Contracts is a software package that has everything you need to create and manage a professional staff handbook and contracts of employment. Getting these in place has traditionally been an expensive, complicated and time-consuming process. Bright Contracts makes it quick and easy.

Why should I use it?

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.

How much does it cost?

Single employer, unlimited employees €149
Multiple employers, unlimited employees €299
Phone/email support Free

Price is per user and subject to VAT. Price covers 12 months full use from date of activation.

Feature Packed Software

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.

Unlimited Employees

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.

Create Your Staff Handbook

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 Employment Contracts

Create a contract for each employee and record when they are signed. Archive old contracts. Base one contract on another for rapid creation.

Styles, Fonts, Colours

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.

Document Previewing

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.

Keeping Track

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 An employee is flagged amber if he or she has an out of date handbook or soon to expire contract.

At a Glance

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.

Guidance and Tips

Not everyone is an employment law expert. If you're not sure what to enter for a certain field, or you're not 100% sure what something means, click the handy tip icon for an inline explanation.

Always Up To Date

Employment law legislation changes over time. When it does, and the Bright Contracts handbook or contract template changes, you'll be made aware of the adjustment, which you can accept with a single click.

Bureau Version

Expand the services you offer or add a new revenue stream to your business wih the Bureau version of Bright Contracts, which allows you to create handbooks and contracts for unlimited employers and employees.

Industry Customisation

Bright Contracts partners with professional bodies and groups to create bespoke contracts and handbooks. Industry customisation is an excellent value added member offering for any professional group.

Minimum Wage Increase

Budget 2017 has made for interesting reading right across the board. A key point for small employers will be the increase to minimum wage. 

From 1st January 2017, the national minimum wage will increase by 10 cent, from €9.15 per hour to €9.25 per hour. This announcement is in-line with the recommendation given by the Low Pay Commission earlier this year. 

As of 1st January 2017, the following will be the applicable hourly minimum rates:

  • Experienced adult worker: €9.25
  • Over 19 with less than 2 years since beginning first job: €8.33
  • Over 18 and less than 1 year since beginning first job: €7.40 
  • Aged under 18:   €6.48

Some of the other budget announcements likely to affect small businesses include:

  • Changes to USC rates
  • Increase to the Earned Income Tax Credit for small business owners
  • Entrepreneur Relief: a reduction to 10% in the capital gains tax 
  • 9% VAT rate for tourism to continue to apply

Thesaurus Software is holding a Free Budget Update Webinar on 18th October. If you are looking for a concise breakdown of how Budget 2017 will affect your business register here.
