Employment Contracts, Policies & Procedures

Employment solicitors supporting your business

Need help with drafting contracts & policies?

Drafted correctly, your contracts, policies and procedures will help you manage your business, comply with current legislation, and deal with many day-to-day employment matters such as sickness absence and performance more easily.

Our employment lawyers will help you draft and implement strong and up-to-date documents such as:

  • Employment contracts for senior and junior employees
  • Staff handbooks, and general employment policies and procedures
  • Sickness absence and attendance policies
  • Capability and performance policies
  • Consultancy agreements
  • Service agreements for senior executives
  • Post-termination restrictions

We also advise on varying contractual terms of employment and on contract and policy issues arising from mergers, acquisitions and disposals, including TUPE.

Some examples of recent work:

  • Providing suites of template documentation for extensive TUPE transfer and collective redundancies consultation
  • Advising and regularly updating handbooks, policies and procedures and template letters for each stage in the disciplinary, grievance and capability process
  • Advising a national retailer on policy issues and changes affecting multiple locations, and advising on policies relating to indirect sex discrimination for several different site managers
  • Drafting and negotiating service agreements and related TUPE/Agency Workers Regulations issues
  • Drafting directors' service agreements and non-executive directors' letters of appointment

‘The team are personable, technically extremely strong and will go more than the extra yard for their clients. Alongside of that, their industry sector knowledge and experience is uniquely broad and deep. They are a true ally and their advice is always commercially balanced.’
