Employment contracts for employers

Whether you’re a new business starting up or an established business looking to expand employment contracts may be the last thing on your mind, however they should be a priority.  Your employees are one of the greatest assets of your business and having employment contracts in place helps you to look after your staff and protect your company.

Employees are entitled to a written statement of terms and conditions within two months of starting work.  A contract of employment, hand-in-hand with a Staff Handbook ensures your staff have security, clarity of their obligations and an understanding of how matters are dealt with by the company.  Having tailored contracts alongside a Staff Handbook means you can protect particular aspects of your company whilst providing guidance to your employees on how your company conducts matters, from standard maternity and sickness absence procedures to the steps you have in place to deal with any grievances or disciplinaries that may arise.
