Employment Contracts, Policies & Procedures


A solid foundation

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
