Our  Employment Contract Services

  • Contract Review and Drafting: We review your existing employment contracts or draft new ones aligned with your specific needs and current employment law. We ensure the contract is clear, concise, and adheres to all legal requirements.
  • Clause-by-Clause Explanation: We break down the contract’s intricacies in clear and understandable language, explaining each clause’s implications.
  • Expert Advice on Contractual Disputes: If you encounter a dispute arising from your employment contract, we provide expert legal advice and representation, helping you navigate complex situations with confidence.
  • Director service agreements – the terms of an employment or service agreement for a director will be different than for other staff. Issues will typically include directors duties, limitations on authority, post termination restrictive covenants, removal of director for breach, renumeration, and often good leaver or bad leaver clauses

Importance of having policies alongside your main employee terms and conditions

It is increasingly common for employers to opt to separate out many employment rules from the contract itself. This is because keeping workplace rules and policies out of the contract may enable the employer to change these rules without the express agreement of the employee. Policies or an Employee Handbook may include issues such as :

  • sick leave and pay;
  • any other paid leave;
  • disciplinary and grievance procedures (this can be provided within 2 months) (although we would recommend that these procedures are not contractual entitlements).
  • working form home and remote working policies.
  • data protection and employee confidentiality.

As well as complying with the legal requirements of such documents as set out above, we can also advise you as to what additional clauses may assist to protect your business, for example in the areas of confidential information, intellectual property and restrictive covenants.

If you have any questions regarding employment contracts, written particulars, or any issue surrounding employment law, you can get in touch with our team for expert advice.
