Employment Contract Services


The starting point for successful employee relationships lies in having expertly crafted, well-maintained and up-to-date contracts and procedures - written in straightforward language that everyone can understand.

We draft, amend and update employment documentation, including contracts of employment, offer letters, company policies and staff handbooks that you, your staff and managers can use as working documents on a day-to-day basis.

Why do you need printed Employment Contracts?

Your staff will already have a term of an employment contract - even if you or they don't realise it. Problems arise when the terms of the contract are not in writing or don't reflect what you want them to be. We often come across disputes at work which could have been easily solved or even avoided if there were properly drafted and up-to-date contract in place.

All your permanent employees are entitled to be given written particulars of their employment within two months' of starting work. It is crucial that every employer has these in place. If you do not, a Tribunal will award the employee compensation of up to £1,900.

Whether employing a key senior worker or an apprentice, and whether full or part-time, we advise on what should be included to protect your business. We will also tailor to your specific needs and regularly review to make sure you comply with the latest in employment law and good practice. We will help you implement changes to your employee's contract too if needed.
