- Written, verbal and statutory requirements
- Rates of pay
- Rest breaks
- Sick leave

- Notice requirements.
There is also a checklist covering issues that trainees and newly qualified pharmacists should avoid in a contract, including:

The fact sheet also covers areas that relate specifically to pre-registration trainees, including learning contracts, study time and training plans, as well as information about where to go for advice, including trade unions and the charityâ€™s own service which includes a referral to a specialist employment adviser if required.
