Employment Contracts

An employment contract sets out your terms of employment, including you and your employer’s rights and responsibilities, during the employment relationship.

What do employment contracts entitle me to?

Under employment contracts, employees are entitled to receive written terms with information such as rate of pay, place of work, holiday entitlements etc., within two months of starting employment. A verbal contract of employment, where there is no written contract, may be equally valid.

 

How can we help?

At the start of an employment relationship it is essential that you understand what you are being asked to sign. We can assist you in negotiating the most favourable terms at the commencement of the employment relationship. We can advise you on the terms of the employment contract, including pitfalls you should be wary of. We have considerable knowledge and expertise of the market standard for employment contracts and will be able to advise comprehensively on the risks you may be exposed to, particularly issues such as restrictions on where you may work and who you may work with after your employment has ended.

If there is already an existing employment relationship, usually both parties must agree to any amendment of the contract. However, employees may face difficulties, and sometimes dismissal, if they reject a change of terms proposed by their employer. This is a complex area which we can advise you on.

If problems arise, our Employment team is able to advise and represent you in relation to disputes and breach of contract claims.

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Family & Divorce

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

Despite your busy work schedule, you always made our case at the top of your priority list, you kept us calm and soothed our fears. Without your wonderful advice and your firm’s legal experience, we would not have the outcome we had. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who needs a brilliant solicitor.

I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Child Abduction

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
