Employment Agreements - who understands them?

Only 0.6% of people read their employment agreements in full!  That is 6 people in a thousand.  This is according to a study conducted by protecting.co.uk - and only another 0.1% had read it in part.  Why am I not surprised?  The answer is simple - they are just too complicated.

Our legal compliance requirements and the challenges companies have protecting themselves if their agreements are not correctly worded, mean that all legally-drafted agreements require someone with that level of understanding to interpret them.  So most people don't read them and, as they won't pay the money to a specialist, they simply don't understand their agreements.

I make sure my agreements have all key variables set out on a separate schedule - but only one of my clients has ever requested a contract their staff could read and understand.  I would love to help others do this.
