Employment Contracts Solicitor
Doswell Law has extensive experience as a specialist employment contract solicitor in advising individuals, including senior executives, with regard to employment contracts. We can review your employment contract, Directors’ service agreements or consultancy agreements, including any bonus or commission schemes, so that you understand your rights and obligations and can negotiate the best possible terms and conditions with your employer. In addition, we can also advise on share schemes, and other long-term incentive plans to ensure you receive the best benefits package.
Employment Contract Obligations
We can advise you on any restrictive covenants, including confidentiality, intellectual property and non-compete obligations. It is important to know whether you have any continuing obligations towards your ex-employer in respect of confidentiality, non-compete, non-solicitation and non-poaching to ensure that you comply with any relevant restrictions. We can advise on the best way of protecting your legal position should you be subject to High Court enforcement proceedings for breach of your restrictive covenants.
Breach of Employment Contracts
We can advise on whether your employer has breached any of its obligations under your employment contract, including any tribunal claims for breach of contract, constructive dismissal and/or unlawful deductions from wages. We can also advise on tribunal claims involving unpaid bonuses and commission.
