Employment Contracts and Service Agreements 3C

Employment contracts and service agreements

Contracts and service agreements are part of all employment so it’s essential to get things right. If you’re an employee your contract sets out the terms and conditions of your employment, such as hours, holiday entitlement and your rights. It’s a legal document, and is binding until the contract ends, or the terms are changed.

If you’re an employer you’ll need to provide a contract within two months of someone starting work. You’ll need to make sure that it covers certain minimum information – if you don’t it can result in awarding employees two-four weeks’ pay.

We can help you achieve all of this, and our specialist team have all the advice you need to get your contracts up to scratch. There are certain matters which a contract must contain, and our lawyers can advise you on all the legal aspects of creating and understanding contracts, protecting you, your business or your employees’ rights.

As part of this we’ve set capped fees for reviewing and making amends to current contracts, making the process as cost effective and efficient for you as possible.
