Contracts of Employment 

'Get It Right, And In Writing'

Contracts of Employment (Employee Contracts) are a legally binding agreement between you and your employees that need to comply with Section 1 of the Employment Rights Act 1993.

Contracts of employment are a legal nessesity

As an employer, contractual protection & absolute certainty as to what the terms and conditions of employment are for your employees offer you protection from future Employment Tribunal claims. A prime example many business owners will have experience of is ex-employees trying to poach clients from them. Comprehensive restrictive covenants (post-termination restrictions) should be in place to protect their business from this happening. It’s imperative these clauses be worded correctly, otherwise you will not be able to rely on them. Always have an expert draft your Contracts of Employment, or you’ll likely not be able to enforce your terms.
