We can undertake a review of your employment contract to advise you of any risks.
A normal employment contract review includes:
- Ensuring the contract meets the minimum lawful requirements as set in the National Employment Standards.
- Advising about probationary periods.
- Ensuring that the hours of work are lawful and discussing overtime obligations.
- Reviewing bonus terms and advising of circumstances where bonuses may not be paid.
- Reviewing terms relating to the employer deducting expenses from your wages or salary.
- Advising on confidentiality obligations.
- Advising on restraint terms, such as those which may prevent you from working elsewhere after your employment comes to an end.
- Reviewing termination terms and notice periods.
- Advising on intellectual property rights and obligations.
- Advising whether you must provide exclusive service to the employer or whether you have the capacity to work elsewhere.
- Discussing possible company policies, and the application of any modern award (and how that award compares to your employment contract)
- Advising on allowances and reimbursement entitlements.
- Advising on suggested amendments.
We find that, in most cases, we can provide you advice on your employment contract in a single meeting.
