Contracts & Termination Agreements

A proposed move to another employer can seem daunting.  We can offer support by reviewing current contracts for provisions which can affect an employee's ability to move seamlessly to another job, as well as review and assist in the negotiation of new terms and conditions.  Many of our individual clients ask us to review employment documentation to let them know in advance of any unusual or particularly onerous provisions or restrictions, or to seek clarity regarding entitlements before they accept an offer of employment.  We also advise on complex remuneration structures. 

Additionally, we regularly review severance proposals and agreements for directors and employees at all levels.  We advise employees of their rights on the termination of their employment, and on the terms of any proposals or compromise agreements, and help to negotiate improvements or simply to confirm that all their rights have been addressed for their peace of mind.  We challenge the fairness of dismissals and internal procedures, where appropriate.  We advise on termination agreements at all levels, including the most senior and sensitive.  Employers usually offer a modest contribution towards the cost of obtaining advice.  Sometimes this can be increased to cover all costs incurred.
