Hi all

I recently accepted a role in a start-up and received the contract today.

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have in this section of their contract? Not sure what the norm is? (I was contractor before so not so relevant info). Thanks in advance!

Thank you!
