Service Agreements & Contracts of Employment

It is a legal requirement that all employees are provided with key details relating to their employment within two months of starting. This information is usually contained in their ‘employment contract’ also known as a Service Agreement or Statements of Particular.

Properly drafted, these agreements contain the necessary information required by law. They can also protect your position (particularly in regard to termination of employment) and set out the employee’s role and duties for the benefit of all.

Tailored to business needs

Glanvilles Damant solicitors will discuss your requirements with you and then draft employment contracts that are tailored to your needs.

Such contracts can include disciplinary and grievance policies and more business specific matters such as data protection and health and safety. We will also advise on what policies should be binding contractual commitments and which can be non-contractual for the purpose of flexibility.

For key employees such as directors and senior executives, we can produce effective service agreements to protect your investment in these individuals and your company. We will tailor such agreements for you to incorporate clauses such as confidential information, restrictions on later employment, notice periods etc..

Employment law is constantly evolving. Glanvilles Damant can help you regularly review your contracts to ensure they are compliant with current legislation. We will also make sure that post-termination restrictions are up to date to ensure they remain enforceable.
