If you’re about to start a new job, 365 employment law can review your employment contract and advise you on whether it’s in your best interests to agree to the terms or to request changes.
We can check that the employment contract complies with all legal requirements and help you to negotiate better terms in relation to your benefits package, including termination provisions.
Restrictive covenants and post-termination restrictions
Your employer may want to limit what work you do next if there is any possibility that you might take their customers or if you know confidential information.
In some cases, employers will include terms (non-compete clauses) which restrict you from working with a competitor or setting yourself up in competition with your employer after you’ve left their company. Restrictions are legally enforceable but must be limited in geography (limited to a geographic area within which your existing employer competes) and only set for a specific amount of time (usually no longer than six months).
Negotiating with your employer
365 Employment Law helps employees to negotiate fair terms. We can review a contract on your behalf and provide prompt and concise advice on terms in your contract. If you are already restricted by covenant, we may be able to help you to persuade your old employer to ignore a restriction, or to reduce the period of time it is valid for.
