Contracts Of Employment

Employment contracts can be oral or written, express or implied and are simply agreements specifying terms and conditions whereby an individual agrees and consents to perform their working duties. These duties are directed and controlled by an employer in return for their wage or salary.

At BPS Law our employment law solicitors are very familiar with the pitfalls in employment contracts. We are ideally placed to advise you on any problems you may have with a new or existing employment contract, including helping you negotiate new terms, providing you with speedy and succinct advice on specific problems in your contract.

For employees: we can review the employment contract you are offered in your new job, provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what you are being asked to sign and help to negotiate the best terms for you.

When there has been a change of employer because of a business sale or transfer, your new employer may attempt to make changes to contractual rights, which are protected under employment law. Whatever problem you have with your employment contract, our solicitors have the expertise to ensure that you can get the most out of your contractual rights.

For employers: we can help take away the stresses of meeting regulatory compliance. We will ensure that your employment contract meets all legal requirements as well as drafting the clauses of every aspect of your business contract. For example, salary package, commission, /bonus schemes, holiday allowance, office mobility clauses, appropriate termination provisions and most importantly; restrictive covenants.
