Contracts of employment are vital for both employers and employees as they establish in detail what each can expect from the other.
Whether written or verbal, a contract of employment should clearly explain your rights and responsibilities as an employee as well as stating the conditions of your employment, such as working hours, holiday entitlement and pay.
At FDR Law, our specialist solicitors provide advice on all aspects of employment contracts. Perhaps you’ve been asked to sign a contract that you don’t understand or maybe you’re worried about changes your employer is making to an existing contract.
Whatever the situation, it’s important to remember that even if you don’t sign a contract, you are still assumed to have agreed to the terms by accepting a job offer. So it’s important to ensure you understand a contract and approve the terms before starting a job. Or maybe you are a Self Employed worker and want advice on drafting or negotiating a contract.
Whatever concerns you have, our friendly, knowledgeable employment law solicitors are here to help.
You can talk to us in complete confidence so if you’d like to find out more about contracts of employment, call us on 01925 231000.
