Employment Contracts, Policies & Procedures

Employment Contracts

Employment contracts are at the heart of your relationship with your employees. It’s important to have employment contracts that are tailored to your business and to individual employees and their responsibilities. Our employment solicitors can help you put in place contracts that protect your business and set the right tone for your relationship with staff.

We understand that every business is different, and that roles within each business are also different. Some employers prefer generic contracts to ensure consistency of treatment, but others prefer bespoke contracts to match specific requirements.

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to drafting contacts. Whatever your preference, we will work with you to put in place contracts that suit your business.

In many organisations, basic contracts may be appropriate for junior staff, but contracts for senior employees should be tailored to reflect their role and responsibilities. We can advise on and draft contracts for your entire workforce, from directors and senior managers to those working on a casual or zero-hours basis.

We work with organisations of all sizes and across all major business sectors. So whether you’re an SME or an international corporation, we have the experience and knowledge you need to get the most out of your UK workforce.

Our employment contract lawyers can:

  • Draft legally compliant employment contracts for different roles in your organisation
  • Advise individuals on their own employment contracts
  • Review and amend existing contracts
  • Protect sensitive information and valuable client relationships with enforceable restrictive covenants
  • Minimise the risk of employees breaking or challenging their contracts
  • Enforce contract terms and covenants through employment litigation
  • Assist with and coordinate employee share schemes.

As part of one of the UK’s leading law firms, we can assist with any scale of project, from drafting a single contract to reviewing all your staff contracts.

With teams specialising in all areas of business and employment law, we can take an integrated approach to any other legal issues that your business is facing too.

We’ll work collaboratively with you to understand how your business works. All our advice will be pragmatic, commercially-minded, and suited to your business’s individual needs and culture.
