Employment contracts, policies and procedures form the basis of the employment relationship in England. In the absence of a codified body of employment protection laws, employers and employees rely on the employment contract to set out all their rights and obligations.
Accordingly, great care must be taken when drafting employment contracts. Precise and comprehensive contracts and procedures are essential to limit misunderstandings and costly disputes.
To ensure that you keep up to date with employment rights legislation, you should review your contracts and employment policies and procedures regularly. This will also have a positive impact on staff morale and improve productivity.
We can review your existing contracts and procedures and draft new ones where necessary to suit your exact requirements.
