Bright Contracts (Ireland)
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.

Under the Employment Act 2019, it is now a criminal offence for employers not to have contracts of employment in place for their staff.

About Bright Contracts
Bright Contracts has been helping Irish employers meet their employment obligations since 2012. During this time, our documentation has passed scrupulous Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) workplace inspections carried-out on our customers’ workplaces. Our documents have also helped employers defend employment hearings held in the WRC. Bright Contracts gives our customers strong peace of mind that they’re doing the right thing.
Priced at just €149 + VAT for a standard 12 month licence and €299 + VAT for a bureau licence (more than one company), there are no sticky contracts, it’s just great value.
Bright Contracts Ireland is a program designed to create and manage a professional staff handbook and contracts of employment. You can optionally add, edit, move around or delete the provided handbook sections as required, and of course, you can add your own.
As an employer, when it comes to your new employees, you must give a written statement of 5 core terms of employment within 5 days of starting employment (also known as a Day 5 Statement).
These 5 terms are:
- The full name of employer and employee
- The address of the employer
- The expected duration of the employment contract
- The method of calculating or rate of pay
- The expected normal working day and week
Employees must receive the remaining terms in writing within 2 months of starting work. Penalties for non-compliance are up to €5,000 fine and in extreme cases a potential prison sentence!
Nowadays, you don’t have to worry about how to get documents to your new employees. There is an easier, more powerful way to share your employee contracts. Thanks to Cloud HR Platforms, compliance is as easy as 1,2,3!
- Create a contract of employment for your new employee, making sure to include the core terms of employment.
- Ensure that your new employee has access to the employee portal for your company’s Cloud HR Platform
- Upload their completed contract to the Cloud and move on to getting to know your new hire!
That’s it! You are now fully compliant, following best practice recommendations and safe in the knowledge that your employees have received the information you need them to have!
