Starting a new job or changing roles? It's important to know that there will be no surprises in your new contract
Many people are shocked that some elements of their employment contract are unenforceable and in some cases they are even against the law. Often the actual terms of the contract do not reflect what you believe has been agreed with the employer.
An employment contract review can be highly beneficial at various stages of your career e.g. starting a new job and changing jobs or any time you are signing a new employment contract.
We're here to help
We can review the employment contract you are offered in your new job, provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what you are being asked to sign, and help to negotiate the best terms for you.
We will advise you as to whether the employment contract meets all legal requirements and consider key clauses including salary package, commission, profit sharing, bonus, share schemes and options, holiday allowance, health insurance, flexible working arrangements, working overseas, mobility, appropriate termination provisions and restrictive covenants.
Our employment lawyers can also assist by reviewing your existing contract and what implications this has on your new role. The contracts could have an impact on each other, for example how long and if you are not able to work for a competitor (non-compete clause) amongst many other things.
