Employment Contracts

Did you know that all employees should have a written employment contract or a statement of their basic terms and conditions?  Does your business need help complying with the law?

Good employment contracts are the most important tool for you to define the rights and responsibilities of your employees.  Contracts should cover all the key basics such as salary, working hours, holiday entitlement and notice periods.  Worded correctly, they can also protect your business by including confidentiality agreements, non-compete clauses and restrictive covenants enforceable on your employees when they leave.  This is especially important for professional services and people businesses to stop staff leaving with the client list and setting up in competition.

At Backhouse Solicitors we are experts in preparing employment contracts for our clients.  We work with companies in many industries and will tailor the contracts to your exact needs.

The benefits for your business:

  • We will bring your contracts up to date – making you compliant with the law and reducing tribunal claims
