ABSTRACT
The article debunks the myths associated with employment law that have become so entrenched in working practices that for some they have become a part of folklore. One common myth is that contract of employment must be in writing, so verbal promises or assurances made to an employee are not binding. This is entirely a wrong perception. Another myth is that the offers of employment can be withdrawn if the employee has not actually started work. This again is false. The myth that employees who are engaged on fixed term contracts are not able to bring claims for unfair dismissal when their fixed term contract ends is also not true.
