Contracts of Employment

Get in touch

Whether you are starting a new job or your current employer has offered you a revised contract of employment, it’s important to ensure that the contract reflects your understanding of your employment terms and that you agree with them. If, for example, you leave it until termination to fully understand the restrictive covenants in your contract which prevent you from working for a competitor, it may be too late to do anything about them.

We will review your contract, advising you of its meaning and implications and whether there are any terms that should be amended. We can also assist if you want to renegotiate any of the terms with your employer.

Please contact a member of our team if you would like any further information.
