Recently, I’ve seen a lot of ‘we’re hiring’, mostly on LinkedIn
I LOVE this. It’s amazing to see, especially in these difficult times
But it makes me wonder…when it comes to taking on new employees, do you have robust employment contracts in place?
Do you have decent contracts in place with your current employees?
Employment contracts are important for BOTH employee and employer (which I’m sure you’ll know)
And it’s not just a case of copying and pasting a random contract from somewhere, that’s not going to protect either of you I’m afraid
You need to have bespoke contracts drafted for YOUR business. That way they’ll have the right clauses in place that you need to be fully protected
These need to contain the likes of copyright protection, termination clauses, your duties, their duties and dispute resolution (to name a few)
You don’t want either of you to get into a sticky situation because your contracts aren’t up to scratch…
