Employment law for business
There are many things a business can do to protect itself. Take a look through our product pages and call us if you see anything of interest. We are able to provide a fixed price quote on most work.
Employment contracts and policies
Employment contracts make a big difference! They are the “building block” of the employment relationship. For your most junior employees you could probably just provide a statement of particulars. However we would recommend a standard contract even for the most junior employee: there are protections built in which are key to good long term employment relationships. For senior employees and directors, it is important to have a properly drafted contract or service agreement.
Generally speaking, most employers will also want the protection provided by lawyer-drafted restrictive covenants, sometimes known as a non-compete clause.
We offer a wide range of policies and procedures. Take a look through the list. Employers are required by law to have a disciplinary and grievance procedure, but we recommend that most employers, even with a small number of staff should have between 10 – 20 policies in place. We can help you draft these quickly and conveniently.
