Key Guidance on Employment Contracts

As an SMEs, you will deal with people and other businesses on a daily basis, meaning that your enterprise must also deal with other business contracts all the time. From clients, suppliers, employees and investors to landlords, tenants, consultants and partners, you will have had various types of business contracts with them.

employment contracts are one of the most common business agreements and are important in limiting any potential disputes and ensuring your workforce is properly engaged. There are various types of employment contracts, from fixed-term to zero-hours. Find out more about what type of UK employment contract you should consider for your employees.

If you are not sure what type of contract you should be offering, or if you have a good employment contract template, let one of our friendly employment lawyers review it and provide you with employment contract advice to ensure you have the best business agreements for you, your employees and SME.

Typical Employment Contract Questions

As a business owner, it is important to ensure that your employment contract template is able to answer the following questions from the perspective of both parties. If any of the answers are unclear or cannot be answered by your agreement, you need to consider getting advice from an employment contract review service. LawBite’s expert lawyers and solicitors can offer employment contract advice to ensure both parties understand their rights and responsibilities.

1. Does this agreement cover the necessary rights and obligations of the employer and employee?
2. Are there any unusual or non-standard provisions included?
3. What are my liabilities under the contract?
4. Can I work for someone else at the same time as being bound by this contract?
5. How can both parties end the agreement and what are our rights?
6. Is this employment contract legally binding on both parties?

If you want to find out more about the terms and conditions of a UK employment contract, read our blog and learn about the rights and responsibilities of all parties from express terms to implied terms.
