I am in the process of accepting a job offer and instead of sending out a written contract that needs to be signed, everything is done via email. Is this legally sound and normal?
In the past I have always had a written letter which I signed and then mailed or faxed back.
(The new company has behaved impeccably and explained that this their normal procedure and counts as a contract. Additionally they offered to look into getting a paper copy. They are a UK based start-up.)
Update Found this https://www.gov.uk/job-offers-your-rights, basically confirming what the comapny have said.
