The employment contract is the legal agreement between an employer and an employee and its terms and conditions can be formulated in writing, verbally or by conduct. An employment contract should contain the terms and conditions that an employee and an employer have agreed will govern that employment relationship. For example, a person’s salary, leave entitlements and role will ordinarily be included in the contract.
Employment contracts, agreements and policies are an essential part of the management and governance of the employer/employee relationships. At Rowe Bristol Lawyers, we consider that the proper preparation of employment policies, contracts and agreements as not only integral for the efficient day to day running of any business but also as an essential first step in the prevention and mitigation of risk associated with unwanted legal claims and issues, as well as the better management of those legal claims and issues when, and if, they occur.
Rowe Bristol Lawyers has the experience and expertise to draft and review a broad spectrum of employment contracts and advise employees on their rights, entitlements and obligations under an employment contract or award. We can also assist employers with the refinement of their existing employment contracts and with the proper preparation of new employment contracts, agreements and internal policies so as to assist employers in more efficiently managing their employees.
