Advice on Contracts

As an employee you are entitled to receive a written contract of employment within eight weeks of starting your job. This is an extremely important document and it should set out all the important contractual terms of your relationship with your employer e.g. how much you will be paid, your hours of work, holiday entitlement, sick pay provisions etc.

We draft, advise upon and negotiate contracts of employment all the time. We can advise you as you are starting your employment to assist you to fully understand your contract and to try to get the best deal from your employer. You need to be happy with every aspect of your contract particularly those which relate to salary, commission, profit share, bonus, pension, share schemes, flexible working, mobility, holiday and termination.

If you already have a contract and need it reviewed we can do this for you. If you need it we can report on our findings and help you negotiate a better deal.

We are specialist employment solicitors and contractual issues are what we deal with all the time.
