We can ensure that you are protected by your contract of employment when you start a new role. Often employees are reluctant to negotiate terms because they do not want to risk losing their new job, or because they assume everything will be fine. However, a reasonable employer will be open to agreeing sensible and fair amendments.
A well drafted contract protects against the unexpected. We negotiate out onerous terms and insist on the inclusion of anything you’ve been promised or which should be included in the contract. If you are a senior executive you need to give serious thought to matters like:
- Pay and bonus
- Long term incentives
- Notice periods
- Post termination restrictions
- Whether you are potentially at risk from a claim by your former employer by joining a new firm or practice
- Whether you will lose shares or incentives earned during previous employment and whether your new employer will compensate you for this
