Employment contracts can be important documents not just for executive level employees but also an employer's award and agreement covered employees. A well drafted contract of employment can be used not only to establish the important mutual expectations that arise at the commencment of the employment relationship, but also create practical flexibilities about how the relationship might evolve and change over time, or the reasonable expectations and obligations which an employer can place on their employee once the employment relationship has concluded.

It is important to also consider the way in which your contracts of employment intersect with the minimum obligations in legislation such as the National Employment Standards (NES) of the Fair Work Act 2009, modern awards and enterprise agreements, and existing Company policies and procedures.

  • Drafting appropriate and enforceable employment agreements
  • Updating existing employment agreements to ensure they remain current and enforceable
