Drafting of Contracts of Employment

Need help with drafting contracts of employment for your business? Whether you are taking on your first employee or have bought a new business that already employs people we can assist you with the preparation of terms and conditions of employment and an employee handbook. It is a legal obligation that you must provide employees with details of certain terms and conditions on the day they commence employment with you. These standard terms include matters such as:-

  • The names of the employer and employee.
  • The date the employment starts and the date the employee’s period of continuous employment began
  • Pay (or method of calculating it) and interval of payment
  • Hours of work
  • Holiday entitlement and holiday pay
  • The employee’s job title or a brief description of the work
  • Place of work

We provide a range of fixed fees for the provision of tailored contract documentation which you can roll out across your business as it grows.

We support you by making sure that the contract is tailored to the needs of your business in terms of protecting confidential information and also any necessary restraints of trade if you want to stop your employees from damaging your business if they decide to move on.

We also provide support with regard to the implementation of the contracts and presentation of these to your employees. We will assist you in dealing with any queries raised by your employees with a view to ensuring the right terms are put in place and are agreeable by both parties. This will get you off on the right foot and instil confidence within your teams.

Alongside drafting contracts of employment we can also provide a tailored employee handbook. This again can be tailored to suit your needs. It would normally include all relevant policies and procedures that you will need such as:-

  • Disciplinary and Grievance procedures
  • Whistleblowing policy
  • Health and Safety policy
  • Sickness absence management policies and procedure
  • Capability management processes
  • Data protection policies (GDPR compliant)

Our full handbook runs to over 200 pages but you may only initially need a short form handbook.

The team will fully advise you as to what polices you need and work with you to ensure that you are happy with the handbook and also that it fits the culture of your workplace both in tone and presentation.
