Our employment team is familiar with the pitfalls of employment contracts. We are ideally placed to advise you on any problems you may have with a new or existing employment contract, including providing you with speedy and concise advice on specific problems in your contract, helping you negotiate new terms, or representing you in any dispute with your employer.
Our expert contract solicitors
Other firms of solicitors, and accountancy firms, along with their partners and staff, recommend us to their clients. Unlike other firms, we act only for employees. We know the tactics used by employers and their contract lawyers in the development of employee contracts and consultancy agreements, and we have the necessary experience and technical expertise to anticipate and successfully deal with any problems you may encounter.
Right from the start, Slater & Gordon’s expert contract lawyers can help you. We can carry out a review of the contract you are offered in your new job, provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what you are being asked to sign, and help to negotiate the best terms for you. We will make sure your employment contract meets all legal requirements, drafting the clauses of every aspect of your contract, including salary package, commission, profit sharing, bonus, share schemes and options, holiday allowance, health insurance, flexible working arrangements, working overseas, mobility, appropriate termination provisions and restrictive covenants.
Contract disputes can arise when the interpretation of a contract is unclear, when an employer wishes to change the terms of a contract, or if a contract is jeopardised by unforeseen circumstances, such as the sale of a business.
Where there has been a change of employer because of a business sale or transfer, your new employer might attempt to make changes to contractual rights, which are protected under specialist legislation. Whatever problem you have with your employment contract, our solicitors have the expertise to ensure that you are able to get the most out of your contractual rights.
