Employment Agreements

Employment agreements are complex, crucial documents, and ideally unique to your company. Were here to help you develop the right agreements, specifically tailored to meet your particular needs. Our experienced team ensure your employment agreements protect confidential company information, company assets and important clients; manage issues such as variable working hours or apprenticeship requirements; and provide for foreseeable events.

The Essential HR team will help you choose the most suitable type of agreement, whether youre hiring on a permanent, fixed term, casual, or contract basis. Well get it written so it can be signed before the employee starts work and, if youre choosing to use the 90-day trial, well make sure that everything is in place so that its effective.

  • Do you have casuals working regular hours? Or contracted staff who you treat just like any employee?
  • Are there areas where your current employment agreement may not meet current minimum legislation requirements?
  • Do you doubt whether your current employment agreement is effective in reducing risk to your company?
  • Do you have an employee that is disputing their rights because the wording of your employment agreement is unclear?

If you have answered yesto any of these questions, you should consider this service.

Case Study

Making sure that your employment agreements are understood and 100% legal is hugely important. We recently assisted an employer who realised this when an employment issue arose due to a decrease in available work. While the employer only believed they had been acting in good faith on a casual agreement, legally the employee was in the right because the agreement wasn’t in writing.
Avoid these situations by making sure your employment agreements are clear and specific from the start, and avoid unnecessary, time consuming and expensive legal battles.
