Course Description

Employment contracts need to be clear and comprehensive. Generally however, contracts of employment are often poorly drafted and inadequate. In many cases there is verbal agreement with no written terms and conditions. Such scenarios may bring difficulties for parties.

This course will show you, not only the required features of an employment contract, but how to amend an existing contract or incorporate new policies, which is something many businesses are having to do post-Covid. We will show you how to tie in the contract and employee handbook, how to resolve issues open to interpretation and any ambiguity. We will also show you the fair procedures for contract termination and dismissal. All these tips and techniques will prove invaluable going forward, and every attendee will receive course notes to refer to, which may be a hugely valuable resource in the future.
