Section 1 of the Employment Relations Act 1996 (ERA 1996) entitles you to a written statement of initial employment particulars within two months of your start date. This is called a Section 1 statement. It covers the major terms of your employment and must be updated every time changes are made to those terms (sections 1-4, & 11 ERA 1996, section 35 & 37 Employment Act 2002 (EA 2002)).
