Employment - Contractual Issues
We have wide experience of contractual documentation and issues, including Contracts of Employment and Director’s Service Agreements. We regularly undertake health checks on documentation to ensure it complies with statute, current case-law and relevant guidelines, keeping them current, effective and relevant. Examples of such documentation includes contracts, handbooks, policy documentation, disciplinary and grievance procedures, engagement letters, bonus and other incentive schemes.
