Written employment contracts attempt to define the employment relationship between employers and employees. It is often the case that some elements of employment contracts prepared by employers are unenforceable and, in some cases, even against the law. Some employees are shocked to discover that some of the actual terms of the Contract are even against the law and do not reflect what the employee believes has been agreed with the employer. That’s why an employment contract review is important.
Velos & Velos Employment Lawyers strongly recommend an employment contract review which can be highly beneficial at various stages of your career. For example, when starting a new job, changing jobs or even changing roles in the same organisation. It is important for you to be fully aware of the terms and conditions in your employment contract to avoid issues such as unfair dismissal and complete clauses. In the event that you wish to renegotiate terms and conditions, you are able to do so with the assistance of independent legal services and advice provided by Velos & Velos Lawyers.
