Employment contracts

Avoidance of uncertainty is the best recipe for any business contract. This is particularly true in employment contracts.

Both Employers and Employees benefit from clear well written contracts and employment policies.

As an Employer you have a minimal statutory obligation to provide all Employees with a statement of particulars of their employment.

If you need to spell out mutual obligations in more detail (for example mobility clauses, restrictive covenants, intellectual property rights, your right to recover a loan from your Employee) then you need to protect yourself with express contractual provisions.

Remember: prevention is better than cure. Employees have increasing access to good advice. We can assist you by drafting and advising upon contracts of employment and employment policies.
Additionally our Business law team can assist you with employee benefits, such as bonus schemes and share options.
