Changing terms and conditions of employment

Employment contracts are central to your businesses’ relationship with its employees. Properly drafted employment contracts will:

  • Help your business deal effectively with any workplace issues or disputes
  • Regulate your business’ relationship with your employees, and any partners, directors, shareholders or consultants that you have
  • Fulfil your legal obligations to your employees
  • Reduce the risk for any misunderstandings between your employees and your business.

Employment contracts can be complex, so it’s advisable to seek legal advice early. Our employment law experts regularly advise employers on every aspect of contractual documentation. We will ensure your contracts are correctly produced, and clearly define your business’ relationship with your employees. From time to time you may need to update contracts of employment to comply with legal obligations, for instance in relation to data protection rights or pensions.
