Drafting Contracts, Bonus Plans & Policies

Employment Law for Businesses

Effective contracts provide the bedrock for a successful and productive employment relationship.

By working closely with our employer clients and learning about their businesses, we are able to draft appropriately-tailored employment documents for the entire lifecycle of the employment relationship and keeping them “future proofed”. Our team is experienced in advising on:

  • Recruitment (including advising on team moves and navigating post-termination restrictions)
  • Properly tailored contracts of employment, which we update to keep pace with business needs and developments in employment law
  • Drafting employment policies and handbooks, including on emerging legal issues such as time off for IVF treatment, parental bereavement leave and in respect of gender identity rights
  • Drafting restrictive covenants
  • Composing incentive schemes and employee share schemes
  • Advising on Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes

Recent work has included advising on how contracts can be adapted to deal with working from home in the post-COVID world, advising on family friendly rights and the associated contractual and policy documents.

We are commercial and pragmatic and can agree a fixed fee with your business for a “health-check” of your contracts and policies and for annual upgrades of them thereafter.

For further advice, please contact a member of our Employment Law team. Girlings has offices in Canterbury, Ashford and Herne Bay.
