Creating and Updating Employment Contracts and Policies

Duncan Lewis Employment Law Solicitors – Creating and Updating Employment Contracts and Policies


Employment contracts and policies are the backbone of any business and it is important to ensure that employment contracts reflect current employment law – including family friendly policies – and policies take into account matters such as health and safety, disciplinary procedures and grievance procedures.


Some policies such as an anti-bribery policy are not only essential, but are legal requirements – and compliance and keeping abreast of employment law can be a challenge for businesses of any size.


Controlling risks for employees and preventing criminal activity within a company – or preventing a business being targeting by criminals – can require policies which enable staff to be trained, aware of the issues and updated regularly.
