Employment Handbook

An employee handbook is a document that communicates your company’s mission, policies, and expectations. Employers give this to employees to clarify their rights and responsibilities while they’re employed with the company. In addition, maintaining and following these policies show legal compliance. The data and privacy policies are able to be signed by each prospective employee separately to gain consent to process their details and confirm their understanding in relation to data handling.

Employment Contract

How can you ensure your new employee and you are on the same page? How do you cement this new work relationship? And what happens when it runs its course?

All of the above, and more, can be answered with an employment contract so if you need one, you are in the right place.

£320.00

Casual Employees Contract

Unlike a permanent agreement, casual employees have no firm commitment in advance of ongoing employment and generally work on an ad hoc basis (so the work hours are irregular). Casual employees are paid for the hours they work, and they can refuse shifts.

£320.00

Service Contract

A Service Contract will outline the scope of work, length of term, payments, and other terms of the agreement between the client and the supplier of the service. They often include bespoke clauses on liability, indemnity, insurance, intellectual property, confidentiality, data, and anti-competition to ensure both parties have a clear understanding of their business relationship from the outset.

Influencer Agreement

Are you looking to partner with an influencer to help your business blossom online?

Use an influencer agreement to formalise the arrangement between your business and the influencer. This is agreement is used by brands working with social talent bloggers and vloggers as part of a marketing campaign. Influencers may operate on platforms such as YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram and in a wide range of industries such as food, fashion, and health & fitness. Your lawyer can tailor the agreement to your industry and your circumstances.

Under this agreement, a social media influencer agrees to post promotional material about a company’s product or service in return for payment, or payment in kind by way of products or services.

The arrangement can be an effective way to grow your brand and increase your online exposure, but you need protection for your brand and clarity between the parties. That’s what a formal influencer agreement gives you.

This service is for business owners who need an influencer agreement to regulate the relationship between their business and a social media influencer.

If you have received an influencer agreement that you would like a lawyer to review before you sign, please see our service for reviewing documents.  Or if you’d like a lawyer to review your existing influencer agreement to advise on its effectiveness, please consult the service for reviewing documents.

Partnership Agreement

If you run a business with at least one other person, and your business is not a limited company, then you should have a partnership agreement in place. That’s the case even for family-run businesses, which tend to have more informal arrangements.

A partnership agreement sets out how the relationship between the partners and how partners interact with each other. It will clarify important issues such as:

  • How profits are distributed
  • How decisions are made in the business
  • What happens when a partner retires or leaves the partnership
  • How you’ll deal with disputes between the partners

This service is for drafting a partnership agreement, in circumstances where the key terms of business are already agreed upon between the partners. If you would like a lawyer to review a partnership agreement that has been drafted elsewhere, in order to advise you on your risks and rights, please select our reviewing documents service.

Consultancy or Service Agreement

Need an extra pair of hands in your business, without taking on additional staff? Engaging the services of a consultant may be the answer. A consultant can plug the gap in the skills of your current employees, or act as an extra pair of hands during particularly busy periods.

A consultancy agreement is a contract between your company and a consultant for the provision of services. Some consultants deliver their services via a Personal Service Company (PSC). Their PSC is a limited company and the consultant is usually the PSC’s sole employee and director.

The important characteristic of a consultancy arrangement is that it does not create an employment relationship. In order to engage a consultant via a PSC, you may also need to prepare a “Status Determination Statement”, and your lawyer will discuss this with you.

The consultancy agreement will clarify important issues such as:

  • Scope of the consultant’s role and responsibilities
  • Undertakings from the individual on behalf of the PSC
  • Payment terms
  • Duration of the engagement
  • Treatment of your confidential information
  • Expected deliverables or time commitment

With a consultancy agreement in place, both parties have a clear understanding of their business relationship from the outset.

Licensing agreement

If you’re thinking about granting another party with a license to use your brand name or intellectual property, a professionally written document is the way to go. Choose one of our experienced lawyers to draft a Licensing Agreement that is compliant with the law.

When you’re expanding your business and breaking into new markets, it can be cost-effective to share your brand name, trademark, intellectual property or patented technology with another person or business.

To make this partnership work, it is highly recommended that both parties sign a licensing agreement. This contract will legally allow the licensee to use and earn revenue from your service/product or intellectual property as you see your brand and reputation protected.

If you’re a business owner trying to make more sales or have a patented technology to expand, for instance, and you’re granting a license to another party know that this is the path to follow – having a fool-proof licensing agreement drafted by an experienced lawyer.

The license agreement creates healthy boundaries between you and your licensee and clearly sets out the rights, obligations, and responsibilities of both parties, including the terms of usage.

Before hiring a lawyer for this service, please have in mind:

  • This service is only for drafting a licensing agreement.
  • If you have received a licensing agreement that you would like a lawyer to review before you sign, please see our service for reviewing documents.
  • If you’d like a lawyer to review your existing licensing agreement to advise on its effectiveness, please consult the service for reviewing documents.

Shareholders’ Agreement

A shareholders’ agreement specifies the appointment of shareholders, creates rules for appointing and terminating company officers, and sets out requirements for board and shareholder meetings, shareholder duties, entitlements and rights to information and dividends, share transfer restrictions, and exit provisions.

Review Commercial Lease

You’ve found the perfect premises for your business and now you’ve received a commercial lease from your landlord. These leases can be lengthy and complicated. It can feel like a minefield to decipher what’s expected from you. You might not know which clauses are ‘industry standard’ and which ones are red flags.

Your lawyer can review the lease with your best interests in mind. They’ll highlight the onerous or unusual clauses that you may want to renegotiate. You’ll know exactly what you’re signing up to and whether you can use the premises in the way you intended. You can plan for the risks and obligations imposed on you by the lease and position your business in advance to manage the risks appropriately.

Employee Handbook

Growing your team? As you take on more employees, it’s a good idea to have a comprehensive employee handbook. Your employees can refer to it (alongside their employment contract) if they have questions relating to their duties and rights.

The handbook sets out policies and procedures such as shared parental leave, anti-bullying policy, and policies for sick leave to name a few. It’s an important document for your business, ensuring that all your employees are treated fairly and that your staff know what’s expected of them.

£520.00 +VAT

Employment Contract

When your business is growing and you’re ready to take on new staff, you’ll need a clear, professionally drafted employment contract for each of your new hires.
All new members of staff must receive an employment contract on or before their start date, so you need a contract to hand that you can tailor to your employee before they begin.
Our lawyers will draft a template employment contract for you, which ensures that your business is compliant with HR law.

Become a Sponsor

In order to employ someone to work for you who currently lives outside of the UK, you’re likely to need a sponsor licence for your business or charity.

As a sponsor, you’ll be able to head hunt certain candidates from overseas, and you’ll have a much wider pool of talent to choose from for recruitment purposes.

Our lawyers can draft and submit the relevant documentation for you. They can advise you on your ongoing obligations as a sponsor so that you can put in place all the required arrangements.

£720.00 +VAT

Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)

A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a legally binding document that gives your business protection when you share confidential information with a third party. It’s also known as a Confidentiality Agreement.

Third parties can potentially use leaked confidential information to give your competitors an unfair advantage, or harm your business in other ways. An NDA prevents contractors, consultants, and employees from revealing your trade secrets. The party or parties signing the NDA agree that sensitive information they may obtain will not be made available to anybody else.

This service is for business owners who need a new Non-Disclosure Agreement to protect confidential information that they provide to third parties in the course of their business dealings.

If you have received an NDA which you would like a lawyer to review before you sign, please see our service for reviewing documents.

Or if you’d like a lawyer to review your existing NDA to advise on its effectiveness, please consult the service for reviewing documents.

Shareholders’ Agreement

A shareholders’ agreement specifies the appointment of shareholders, creates rules for appointing and terminating company officers, and sets out requirements for board and shareholder meetings, shareholder duties, entitlements and rights to information and dividends, share transfer restrictions, and exit provisions.

Terms and Conditions

Well-drafted Terms & Conditions are vital to your business. Your T&Cs are the legally binding contract between your company and its clients / customers, and they’re an important tool in protecting your business.

What happens in circumstances of non-payment or late payment? What if there’s a delay in delivery that wasn’t your fault? Your T&Cs will clearly set out the answer to these issues. They limit your liability and reduce your exposure to financial risk.

Most importantly, your T&Cs align your expectations of the contract with your client’s. Everybody is on the same page about their obligations and what happens in the event of problems that crop up from time to time in business.
