Employment Contracts

Employment contracts are important legal documents and it is important to ensure that they are properly written, to protect your legitimate business interests in case of disputes.

Without a formal written contract, employees are still protected by statutory rights; but it is much easier for disagreements to arise and for miscommunications to damage your relationship. Our Employment Team can assist with drafting contracts, and adapting these to different roles within the business. These may differ depending on the complexity of the role, or levels of access to confidential information.

You may also wish to ask our Employment Team to review your company procedures and policies. Many employers issue handbooks or written statements of policies separate to the contract; this makes it easier to change policies without gaining mutual consent of all employees. There are a number of policies which are required under legislation, including Maternity, Health and Safety and Equal Opportunities policies. You may wish to add additional statements to clarify issues such as conduct on social media or compassionate leave policies. 

 

 

What our clients say

  • "No improvement to service needed. Alison was the epitome of professional calm in going over options and maintaining patience, and indeed advised against a path that certainly would have achieved higher fees for her, but the correct call in retrospect. So I feel her advice was professional and unbiased. She was attentive in keeping me appraised of news, and maintained a polite and stress free approach which kept me calm and optimistic a final result in my favour would occur. Would recommend her, and the firm, to others." Anon
