Employment Contracts & Staff Handbooks
It is essential that all employees are provided with a contract of employment within two months of starting work. Our specialist employment lawyers can assist you with drafting employment contracts and ancillary documentation, such as specific policies and staff handbooks.
Having a valid employment contract in place provides certainty for both employer and employee and reduces the chance of future dispute. Ancillary documentation, such as an Equal Opportunities Policy is essential if, as an employer, you wish to rely on a statutory defence to a claim including harassment. The inappropriate use of social media by staff can result in damage to a business and as such we would highly recommend that an employer has a carefully drafted policy in place to minimise risk of issues arising.
Given the rate of change in employment law it is highly recommended to carry out regular reviews of your contracts and policies. We would welcome the opportunity to carry out a review of your existing employment documentation so as to advise on any changes required, in order to ensure that it is up-to-date and protects your position in accordance with the current law.
We are also able to prepare standard contracts and policies on a fixed-fee basis. If your requirements are more specific, then we will be happy to discuss the potential charges that will apply. We can also assist with the preparation of service agreements for directors.
