Why is it important?

  • It is a legal requirement to provide employees with a written statement of certain terms of their employment.
  • Formally documents the agreement and provides certainty of the employees' entitlements, in particular when linked with vesting provisions that incorporate good/bad leaver provisions.
  • Provides protection for the company as well as the employee, for example anti-competition clauses, which need to be precisely drafted in order to be enforceable.

Documentation

  • Employment contract.

How can we help?

  • We can provide you with a template employment contract, either for a senior employee or a junior employee.

Typical legal fees: £750 template junior contract, £1,250 template senior contract.

This fixed price assumes that we only have limited input into the agreement and answer limited questions related to the template.

We would agree additional charges to add further specialist terms as required.
