Implementing a New Employment Contract

What you need from your employment contract really depends on the nature of your business. For some organisations post termination restrictions, detailed confidentiality clauses and protecting intellectual property is vital. For others, a far simpler approach is needed.

You’ll need to implement a new employment contract if you haven’t yet put anything in place at all. If you’ve been in business for a while and have something in place but don’t think it’s up to the job then you need to take a look at our page on Changing Employment Contracts as there’s a strict legal process that you’ll need to follow.

Types of Employment Contract

The employment contract may be one of two types:

  • Written Particulars
  • Employment Contract

Written Particulars

If you’re business is fairly simple then you’re likely to just need a basic Written Particulars in order to meet your legal obligations.

Employment Contract

If you need something that offers more protection then you’re likely to want a full Employment Contract.

Key Service Features

  • Provision of a contract that protects your business, is legally compliant and meets your legal obligations as an employer.
  • An efficient process that means you can have your new contract rolled-out quickly and easily.
  • The contract will be drafted following the completion of a simple questionnaire and then we’ll review the contract with you either by phone or face-to-face.

How We Can Help

The first thing we’ll do is talk to you about your business and guide you on whether you need a full Employment Contract or Written Particulars.

When we say that we’ll work with you to understand more about your business please don’t panic and think this is going to take up hours of your time. We have a short questionnaire which we’ll ask you to complete from which we can determine the best option.

From this, we will create a draft, review it with you to close down any remaining questions (either by phone or face-to-face), and then send you the finished document.

Employment Contract Roll-out

When you’ve finalised your new employment contract, you’ll need to start using it. Obviously, if you’ve created the contract before hiring anyone, this is very easy. You just give it to your new employees.

However, if you already have employees, regardless of whether or not they have a contract at the moment, it can be a little more complicated. We can guide you through the process and either manage the roll-out for you or provide you with a time-line and draft communications so that you can do it yourself.
