There are a number of common traps and pitfalls around drafting of employment contracts that can be easily avoided. There are also a number of beneficial clauses that are commonly overlooked.
An employment contract is a legally binding document that confers rights and obligations on the employer and employee. It is important that employment contracts are properly drafted to avoid misunderstandings and disputation during the employment or, in the worst case scenario, legal action. It is also critical for employment contracts to be drafted so that, to the maximum extent possible, the employer's confidential information and intellectual property is protected.
Join us for this webinar designed to give you some practical tips for drafting employment contracts to minimise legal risks and disputation. David and Jordan between them have drafted hundreds of employment contracts for clients over many years and have been involved in many disputes involving contracts of employment and are aware of what to look out for.
This webinar will cover practical issues such as:
- what is the relationship and interaction between modern awards and employment contracts?
- how can the employment contract best protect the employer's confidential information and intellectual property?
- what is a restraint of trade clause, and should you include such a clause in your employment contracts?
- what are the most common mistakes in employment contracts and how can you avoid them?
- what are the key clauses in employment contracts that benefit employers that are commonly overlooked?
