An employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee which sets out employment rights, responsibilities and duties. This does not have to be written down; once you have accepted a job offer you have entered into a contract with the employer, even if you have not signed anything.
Mincoffs Solicitors’ employment team are equipped to advise on contracts on behalf of both employers and employees.
An employer has a duty to issue a written statement of employment particulars to an employee within two months of commencing employment. The employment team at Mincoffs are able to draft employment terms that are relevant to your business. Should your business already have these in place, our experienced employment solicitors are able to review them and advise on whether they are compliant and up-to-date with current legislation.
Our employment team are also able to act on behalf of both employers and employees if and when an employment contract dispute arises. This can happen when:
- Terms of an employment contract are unclear
- Terms of an employment contract have been breached
- An employer or employee wishes to change the terms of the contract
If you are an employer or employee who would like to seek legal advice relating to an employment contract our expert team, led by partner Nick Smith, are on hand to ensure that you are not in breach of contract terms.
