Contracts of employment

You may be offered a new Contract before or on starting a new job or be given an amended Contract to sign during your employment. We recommend that you seek advice before agreeing or signing any Contract. What you agree to now may bind you in the future. We can advise you on the terms of the Contract including your contractual benefits such as holiday, sick pay, commission, bonuses, private health care or restrictive covenants.

You may be approaching the end of your employment or thinking of resigning and not know which clauses will continue to apply post-termination. Employment obligations can arise on termination. If you breach those obligations it could be costly and may affect your future employment. The only way you can be certain is to seek advice.

You should seek advice on your specific circumstances before taking any steps as you could prejudice your position. We can answer these questions in plain English and provide you with practical advice.

      The phrase ‘mixing business with pleasure’ is one which we are all familiar with. Personal relationships in the modern working world can present risks to businesses, particularly where they involve relationships between employees of competing companies. Controlling information being passed between companies is likely to be difficult to police, could result in damaging relationships with talented employees and potential employment tribunal claims.
