Contracts of employment

Have you received a contract of employment? Do you understand all the terms included?

Most terms of a contract of employment cover the usual provisions of job title, salary, holidays, sick leave, and notice periods. However, your employer may wish to restrict your actions post-termination, by including restrictive covenants within the contract. Should you wish to move to a new employer, it is important that you are aware of any such restrictions and understand their implications.

We will review the terms of your contract and advise you on the provisions before you agree to them, and provide you with the opportunity to query any element with your new employer.

For directors, service contracts are often used with even tighter restrictions and longer notice periods. We can offer support and assistance in negotiating the terms of any service agreement.
