Employment Contracts

Before accepting a new position, it is vital to review and negotiate the terms of your Employment Contract. Our experienced solicitors can review your Employment Contract to ensure that it accurately reflects the agreed terms and conditions, reduces risk, improves job security and ensures that you achieve the best possible outcome for your new role.

If you have an employee who has breached his or her Employment Contract, or you yourself, as an employee, have breached your own Employment Contract, please contact us to seek legal advice as soon as possible.  The employee may be liable for a breach of Contract, resulting in damages.

It is imperative that all Employment Contracts include a restraint of trade clause to prevent employees from working for competitors or taking staff or clients with them when they are terminated or following their resignation.

Any employer considering redundancies in the work place should seek legal advice before doing so to ensure that relevant legislation is complied with.

If any of the above Employment Contract issues apply to you, please contact Porta Lawyers for more information.
