The employment contract is the foundational document for the relationship between employer and employee, covering topics such as compensation, termination, and severance.
However, because of perceived time or money constraints, or simple uncertainty, many employers don’t use written employment agreements in their businesses. Unfortunately, such employers miss out on an opportunity to not only limit their financial liability on dismissal, but also achieve clarity around all aspects of the employment relationship.
At Kent Employment Law, we encourage employers to take the same approach to your employment contracts that you do to all your key business decisions: gather and assess all the relevant information, then make a carefully considered, proactive choice, supported by a knowledgeable, experienced advisor.
That’s where our experienced employment lawyers come in. No matter the state of your employment contracts, we can help, whether by drafting new ones for you from scratch or helping you update the ones already in place. And for employers wanting to adopt Sustainable Employment practices in the workplace, we can craft fair, transparent, and reciprocal agreements that are tailored precisely to promote this.
