Contracts of employment are put in place in all companies to protect you, as the employer, and the employee. A contract is an agreement that sets out an employee’s rights, responsibilities and duties, which are referred to as the ‘terms’ of the contract. Having a contract helps to safeguard your business – if you feel your employee is not performing in a manner that is acceptable and is against the agreements made in an employee contract you have the right to terminate the contract.
With all employee contracts, it is possible that issues may arise. These may be issues that affect your business, for example an employee not speaking with clients in an appropriate way, which could cost the company money. Or they may issues which impact on your business in more pernicious ways, such as poor punctuality or dress.
As the employer you know it is vital to avoid disputes with your employees where possible and to approach situations like this delicately. No matter what your issue is with your employee our solicitors at Parrott & Coales have all the relevant knowledge and expertise to help and support you through the process, and assist you to clear any contract problems that you may be facing.
