Contracts of employment

A contract of employment forms the legal relationship between you and your employee.

It should set out a clear framework for the working relationship in terms of what is expected from both parties.

When you consider the different forms of employment today, from freelancers and agency work to self-employment agreements and temporary workers, it is not difficult to see how things can quickly get confusing.

Not only do you need to make sure that these contracts are in line with the law, but they must protect your business from any further risks too.

Contracts Of Employment

A prime example of this is when an ex-employee tries to poach your clients. With the right contract in place, including post-termination restrictions, you will be able to take legal action to stop this.

Here at Neathouse Partners, we have many years of experience with contracts of employment.

Many businesses elect to handle this in-house, and may often live to regret it. Merely wording something incorrectly could make your contract invalid and unreliable.

It is also vital that contracts reflect the reality of the situation.

For example, your contract may say that someone is an self-employed contractor however an Employment Tribunal is entitled to look at what actually happens in practice and they could decide that the contractor was actually an employee which could result in damages for breaches of National Minimum Wage and holiday pay amongst other things.

This is why you need an expert on your side.

We will ensure that all of the critical elements are covered, from duties of the role and holiday terms to agreed working hours and arrangements for ending employment.

We will also discuss anything that may be bespoke to the nature of your business or the person you are hiring.

This will ensure that you are fully protected and don’t experience any nasty surprises down the line.
