What is an employment contract?

An employment contract is a legally binding agreement between an employer and an employee, setting out the terms and conditions of their employment. This will typically include details such as pay, hours of work, holiday entitlement, and other benefits.

Ensuring your contract is fair

It is important to try and ensure that your contract is as fair to you as it is to your employer. We can talk you through your contract and advise on specific terms , this could include salary, holiday allowance, any bonus schemes and flexible working. Importantly, we will ensure you are adequately protected should any disputes arise.

We can advise on employment contracts and service agreements and advise whether any restrictive covenants are reasonable and enforceable.
