I’m self-employed and looking to employ my first member of staff. Can JMR Solicitors help me write an employment contract for any new staff members?
JMR Solicitors can help self-employed individuals looking to employ their first member of staff. Employed staff, need to have a legally binding employment contract within 2 months of starting their job. This employment statement will lay down the foundation of your employment contact, which includes information about, probation periods, salaries, benefits, annual leave, pensions, employment start dates, sick leave, contracted hours of work, disciplinary and hearing procedures, grievances, places of work, employment termination and notices.
As an employer, can I reduce the hours and pay for employees?
Yes, you may reduce working hours and/or pay with an employee agreement. JMR Solicitors can help you draw up an employee agreement.
Often, if a company uses a trade union for collective bargaining reasons, you can agree the change with your representative union.
If your company does not have a union, then employee consent needs to be obtained prior to a change, and the evidence presented in writing.
