If your business is planning to offer a job to a new member of staff, it’s always worth asking an employment lawyer to draft or review the contract before they sign on the dotted line. Over the years, our HR Employment Solicitors have come across many examples of contracts that needed updating. That’s why we believe it is key that you get a solicitors opinion before sending a contract to a potential new staff member.
Solicitors checks will ensure that the employment contract:
complies with all legal requirements
offers a detailed analysis on specific terms relating to benefits packages
covers confidentiality provisions
includes any intellectual-property protection
and any termination provisions.
Our HR Employment Lawyers in Leeds will also review any restrictive covenants, such as non-compete covenants, to make sure they’re likely to be enforceable by the courts and therefore protect your business.
Our team of Leeds HR Employment Solicitors can also advise on the content of other key business documents such as Staff Handbooks and workplace policies. These are important documents for staff to receive as they establish what the employee both knows and is deemed to know about how they must conduct themselves at work.
