Contracts, policies and procedures

All businesses are required by law to issue each employee with a statement of employment particulars, more commonly known as an Employment Contract, within two months of the employee commencing employment.

This contract sets out the terms and conditions agreed between both parties, so getting it right from the outset is essential. If you fail to do so, this can result in unnecessary arguments or disputes – and an award of up to four weeks’ pay if the situation goes to an Employment Tribunal.

We are experienced in drafting and reviewing Employment Contracts and Director’s Service Agreements – ensuring that the contracts we prepare are clear, concise and will be tailored to suit and protect your business, to guarantee its ongoing success. These also form a template for future contracts, to allow uniformity throughout the business. Where appropriate, they will offer flexibility – so that your business can meet the demands it may face in a challenging market.

We can also draft or review Employee Handbooks, which provide the opportunity to create clear working practices in the workplace – so that all of your staff members understand the expectations and the ethos of the business.
