Employment agreements are essential documents for any business that hires employees. They outline the terms and conditions of the employment relationship, including details about job duties, pay and benefits, working hours, leave entitlements, and termination provisions.

When preparing an employment agreement, it is important to ensure that it complies with all relevant employment laws and regulations. This can be a complex task, particularly for small businesses that may not have a dedicated HR department or legal team.

A well-drafted employment agreement can help to prevent misunderstandings and disputes between employers and employees, and provide a clear framework for resolving any issues that may arise. It can also help to protect the business’s interests by including provisions related to confidential information, intellectual property, and post-employment restrictions.

We can also provide advice and guidance on employment matters, such as managing employee performance, handling workplace disputes, and navigating the termination process.
