Reviewing Employment Contracts

Duncan Lewis Employment Law Solicitors – Employment Contract Reviews


An employment contract review is essential in most professions – and can also be vital for employees who may assume that their contract is a standard agreement in accordance with the law.


Sadly, for many employees, it is only when a problem at work arises that the small print in a contract of employment proves to be an issue – and in some cases, the contract may not even be legal.


The law can also change and therefore it is advisable to have an employment contract review not only when starting a new job or if promotion is offered, but also as a matter of course.


An employment contract review can flag up any potential issues involving:


  • Data protection
  • Health insurance
  • Life assurance
  • Pensions benefits
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Share entitlements
  • Tax liability and efficiency.


Disputes involving employment contracts may also involve a review of the contract – including pay issues, holiday or annual leave entitlement and pay, equal pay or flexible working requests.


There may also be issues involving an employment contract review if a company is re-organised, disposed of or merges with another company – and/or redundancies or a reorganisation or relocation of the workforce are necessary.


A contract of employment may also be based on verbal agreements, implied terms (eg duty of trust between employer and employee) – or even the job advertisement. Because employment law can be updated, a regular review of an employment contract can help protect an employee’s rights and entitlements. Terms of employment under a contract can only be varied if both the employee and employer agree to a variation.
