Employment Contract Solicitors

Why do employment contract disputes arise?

Disputes arise for any number of reasons but more often than not the starting point is when the interpretation of a term or condition of the employment contract is unclear, for example:

  • An employer wants to change the terms and conditions of an employment contract, perhaps following the transfer or sale of the business
  • Either party breaches or breaks one or more of the terms or conditions of the employment contract. As an employee this might happen if you breach a Post termination restriction. For more information about Post Termination Restrictions click here 

Once you have established that there is a problenm, however it has arisen you probably need to seek legal advice. Our Solicitors have the expertise to ensure that you get the right advice.
