Having in place relevant and clearly drafted employment contracts can protect your business, avoid costly disputes and ensure compliance with your legal obligations.
It is a legal requirement for all employers to provide employees and workers with a written statement of certain specified terms on or before the date on which employment starts. This may be contained within, or additional to, a contract of employment. Prior to 6 April 2020, the legal requirement was only to provide employees with a written statement of specified terms and employers were given two months to issue the statement.
Legal compliance is important of course, but it is not the whole story. By setting out clearly other terms, such as how commission or bonus payments will be dealt with or when the contract can be varied for example, it can avoid disputes arising. Well drafted contracts of employment can also contain provisions to protect your data, confidential information or customer base, both during and post-employment.
We don’t believe that one size fits all. That is why we provide a bespoke service to ensure that your contracts are tailored to your specific needs and provide protection for your business.
