Contracts of Employment
Contracts of Employment are an important element to any employment relationship, as they govern the terms that apply and the obligations that both parties will have. These documents are however quite often overlooked, only to be focused upon when an issue arises, but by which time it is probably too late.
To ensure that your business is protected and that your contracts reflect your business’ current needs, it is important that your contracts are regularly reviewed. Hewitsons' employment solicitors regularly advise employers on the drafting and review of employment contracts to ensure not only that they comply with legal requirements, but also that they include terms that reflect your business needs.
We provide assistance to employers in preparing contracts of employments for all levels, from “Section 1 Statements” for more junior employees to service agreements for senior executives and directors.
We also advise on matters that may arise in respect of contracts of employments, including procedures that need to be followed to change the terms of an employment contract, as well as advice on disputes surrounding the interpretation of terms.
"Valerie was absolutely fantastic in her legal strategy & planning & response times with opposing counsel which was the Chairman of the other firm. When this Chairman was not responsive on many occasions - Valerie kept her cool and responded back in an extremely cool & logical manner. I could not have asked for better counsel in my situation as she reacted extremely well in my case against an opposing legal entity that represented a very large Italian EPC company. This case was settled quickly and amicably by her"
