Employment contracts and service level agreements
Are your employment contracts fit for purpose?
Have you made your contractual obligations clear?
Employees of all levels need employment contracts that clearly define their terms of employment, pay and conditions. Directors need to be provided with a specific service level agreement that sets out their duties and entitlement to bonuses and share options.
At Myers & Co, our specialist employment law solicitors can define your professional relationships, negotiate the contractual terms and provide you with bespoke contracts of employment and service level agreements.
Having well drafted contracts of employment from the outset can provide a point of reference for both sides if there is a dispute over the terms. You may need to include confidentiality clauses and set out what happens when the term of employment ends. It should also provide a framework for penalties and sanctions if there is a default or a break of trust.
Our EmployerAssist service could provide you with further peace of mind, giving you a dedicated helpline to our employment law specialists, a bespoke annual audit, access to our database of contracts and policies and regular updates at a fixed monthly cost. Our legal indemnity assurance covers you for legal costs for defending you in a tribunal claim and any awards made against you, up to £250,000 per claim and a total of £1 million per year.
