I have interviewed a director of an organisation and they have provided me with their employment contract, how do I reference the contract?

I want to reference the employment contract & their policy manual and information booklet. How can I do this?

Hi Judy,

It's an interesting question you ask. The way you reference this material in part depends on whether it's publically available. If the reader can't reasonably access the material (i am thinking mainly of the contract here) you've been given it's best to treat these documents under the 'personal communication' rules (seen under the personal communication heading on this page - https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide/other-sources

If the documents you've been given are publically available (i am thinking mainly of the information booklet here, possibly the policy manual) then I would treat them largely like books, or potentially a pamphlet. These reference types are quite similar, you have

author year, title, publisher, place

author year, title, pamphlet, publisher, place

(if either of the above are online you would add the viewed date and url at the end).

I hope this helps, please write back to me if you need to
