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.

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 An employee is flagged amber if he or she has an out of date handbook or soon to expire contract.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

Parent’s Leave increases to 5 weeks

Budget 2021 announced that parent’s leave is to increase from 2 weeks to 5 weeks. It is expected that this change will be effective from April 2021.

What is Parent’s Leave

Parent’s leave entitles each parent to additional leave during the first year of a child’s life / first year of an adoption placement. It is generally not permissible for parents to transfer the leave to the other parent. Parent’s leave may be taken as one block or in single weekly blocks. Parents should give at least 6 weeks’ notice of their intention to take the leave.

Where an employee is entitled to take another form of family leave, such as maternity leave, additional maternity leave, adoptive leave or paternity leave, the parent’s leave must start the day immediately following the end of the appropriate family leave.

Pay and other benefits during Parent’s Leave

Eligible parents will be entitled to statutory parent’s leave pay, currently €245 per week. Employers are not obliged to top-up this payment.

Employment rights are preserved during parent’s leave, including annual leave which will continue to accrue.
