 Recorded Webinar: The Top Ten: Employment Contract Essentials Revisited

Date: Tuesday 30th May 2023
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

How often have you revisited your organisation’s employment contracts and reviewed their terms? In many cases it tends to be set and forget, which can lead to a multitude of problems in the event of a dispute over contract terms or a breach of obligations. This session will provide guidance on the key terms that should be in every employment contract, together with the potential consequences of getting them wrong, including:

  • Why job descriptions matter
  • Characterising the nature of employment and the recent High Court decisions on why this is important
  • Remuneration inclusions and how to incorporate bonuses and reviews
  • Reporting lines and responsibilities
  • Effective incorporation of awards and enterprise agreements
  • Why confidentiality needs to be spelled out
  • When will a restraint or non-complete clause be essential?
  • Key terms for intellectual property creation and protection
  • The safety-net of clear termination processes
  • Tips for drafting contractual amendments and template reviews
