Employment contracts are essential for ensuring that staff operates effectively and professionally. They also help to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings and disputes. As of April 2020, it has been a legal requirement that all new members of staff receive an employment contract on or before their start date.

For a fixed fee, we can provide you with an employment contract for senior employees or staff for fixed-term workers. It provides company-specific clauses like enhanced sick pay, bonuses, commission and importantly, restrictive covenants to ensure that the employee does not approach your clients after they leave
