Contract Drafting

How Parker Arrenberg Solicitors assist businesses that employ staff

We are here to assist you with all employment document drafting needs.  We provide a complete range of policies, forms, letter templates and contracts of employment to enable employers to recruit staff, manage employees, through to terminating staff contracts. 

The recruitment stage should be a carefully managed process. The appropriate documentation will help to avoid the potential claims of discrimination.  Parker Arrenberg Solicitors can advise and draft and provide guidance on the following –

  • Equal Opportunity, Diversity Policy
  • Recruitment Policies and Job Descriptions
  • Job Application Forms
  • Interview Guidance Notes and Interview Letters
  • Effective Handling of Probationary Periods
  • Work Experience & Internships

There can also be a clause included that limits or eliminates the amount of control regarding how the self-employed undertakes the work; it will be the self-employed person’s responsibility how the work is carried out.

Employees must receive a written statement of their terms and conditions of employment within two months of starting work.  Parker Arrenberg Solicitors are specialists in Employment Law and the drafting of Employment Contracts.   

Employment Contacts we can assist with include:

  • Full-Time Contracts of Employment
  • Part-Time Employment Agreements
  • Managers Employment Contracts
  • Directors’ Service Contracts

We will explore and advise on the key clauses that should be included in the employment contract to protect your business, such as the inclusion of:

Confidentiality – such a clause in an employment contract will prevent the use or disclosure of confidential information both during and after employment.

Intellectual property – ensure all IP created by an employee during the course of their employment is owned by the employer.

Restricted covenants – restrict the extent to which an ex-employee can compete with your business following termination of employment. A restrictive covenant clause can be inserted into Employment contact to try to prevent them from working in a specific geographical area, contacting customers/clients or poaching staff.

How Parker Arrenberg Solicitors assist businesses that have self-employed personnel or Contractors?

It is important for the self-employed or contractor to have a contract laid out. This contract or agreement should set out in detail the relationship between the self-employed worker and the business they are hired to work for.  The contact can be issued by either the business or the contractor.

Parker Arrenberg Solicitors can advise on key considerations and terms that should be included in the contract.  We generally recommend the business seeking the contractors’ service agreement including a “no mutual obligations” clause, meaning there is no obligation for either party to offer work, accept work or remunerate for work not undertaken.

Parker Arrenberg Solicitors can assist with the following self-employed agreements –

  • Self-Employed Agreements
  • Service Company Contractors
  • Self Employed Subcontractor Agreements
  • Service Agreements
  • Freelance Agreements
