Less is more as far as we are concerned in terms of policies and we’ll make sure that we listen carefully to your requirements so that you have what you need to be compliant in terms of the law and your industry sector.

Contracts of Employment

All employers are legally obliged by Section 1 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 to issue a statement of employment particulars or a contract of employment within two months of the employee’s commencement date. We’ll guide you on the most suitable contract for your employees – part-time, full-time, etc., and can either provide you with templates or prepare the individual contracts for you – it’s up to you.

Amendments to Contracts

Following discussion and agreement with the employee, any changes to a contract of employment must be put in writing by means of an Amendment to Contract letter and we can provide you with a template or we can prepare the letter for you.

Self-Employed Contracts & Consultancy Agreements

Sometimes our clients ask us for assistance with these when they work with consultants or sub-contractors. We’ll chat the individual circumstances through with you and once we have all the facts, we’ll either provide you with appropriate templates or once again, we can prepare the agreement for you.

Directors’ Service Contracts

If you employ key people to act as Directors, they will undoubtedly have access to your business’s most valuable (and often confidential) information, including financial facts and figures, personnel details and, probably most importantly, your customers. We can provide you with protection from such risk by drawing up bespoke Directors’ Service Contracts including suitable restrictive covenants and accompanying shareholder agreements, if relevant.

Settlement Agreements

In an ideal world, employment issues get resolved through talking, mediation or formal procedures, but when none of these works, there is another tool left in the box to mutually agree the end of an employment relationship – the settlement agreement. The negotiation process is complex but we have many years of experience in this area of employment law and are well used to guiding our clients from the start of negotiations through to conclusion, including the drawing up of a legally compliant settlement agreement.
