BVA member research has highlighted that many veterinary surgeons enter into jobs where they do not have a written contract of employment. This leaves them exposed and less able to defend themselves if they face problems in their employment situation.
As a result, we are promoting the importance of written contracts of employment for veterinary surgeons and all veterinary staff.
