At Slater & Gordon Lawyers, we are familiar with the pitfalls for teams of employees moving between employers. With our track record as the number one lawyers for employees, Slater & Gordon is best-placed to assist and advise you on every stage of a team move, including representing you if you are threatened with an injunction or court proceedings. This can be a complex area, and so to manage it successfully, avoiding litigation where possible, we can help you through the process.
The change in employment of an entire team is a high impact event for the organisations involved and often raises substantial legal issues which need to be addressed.
Our employment team is familiar with the many difficulties posed by team moves between organisations, notably the various restrictions that can appear in employment contracts. We are able to apply our contract knowledge appropriately to assist you in negotiations with your employer and advise on the best approach when considering a team move.
When negotiations have gone wrong, or the employer simply will not let a team move without a fight, we also have the expertise and familiarity to deal with applications for injunctions and claims for damages on your behalf.
If the move is not contentious, we can help with everything from reviewing the current contract and advising on the scope and enforceability of restrictive covenants to reviewing the new contracts and advising teams and individuals on the new terms on offer. If there are difficulties, we can advise on everything from negotiating an exit and signing off any releases or compromise agreements to handling litigation at short notice and in an emergency.
