Employment contracts and related documentation, such as employee handbooks, reflect the dynamics between employers and employees, and they have an important role in setting the right tone for the working relationship.
We provide legal advisory services to our clients and work with them in the preparation and review of employment contracts and related documentation to ensure that they are in line with their expectations. In doing so, we play a role in shaping human-resource policies that strike a balance between the commercial objectives of employers, and the individual rights and interests of their employees.
Having an appreciation of how improved productivity is a natural corollary of a happy workforce, we also advise clients on various employee and workplace initiatives. One of the popular forms of employee incentives are share-option schemes, and our employment and tax law practice collaborates to effectively advise clients on the implementation and tax treatment of such schemes.
Employment disputes are usually sensitive in nature, emotionally charged and can affect the reputation of the parties involved. While knowledge of the applicable employment laws and regulations is important, we recognise that empathy is key to being effective in this area of practice and we have considerable experience advising a range of clients, including listed and private companies and directors, on a spectrum of employment disputes, such as breaches of contract, wrongful dismissals, breach of fiduciary duties, and the enforcement of non-compete covenants.
