Contracts for the Modern Employment Relationship

Contracts for the Modern Employment Relationship

In association with McDowell Purcell, this employment contracts event will bring you a masterclass on contracts for the modern employment relationship.  In one day, this seminar will:

  • Enable you to stress test your current template so you can identify which clauses in your template contract of employment need to be updated
  • Arm you with "best in class" clauses which you can incorporate into your template contract
  • Identify where standard clauses, including restrictive covenants, need to be brought up to date with the digital world
  • Show you how to build flexibility into your contracts to enable the organisation to adapt and react to a fast-changing global economy

Why is this event important for you?

In a fast-changing global work environment, where employers are faced with ever-increasing demands for flexibility from clients, contractors and employees alike, the effective management of your contracts of employment has never been more important. Failure to build the flexibility and scope into your contracts of employment to enable your business to move with the times, keep pace with competitors and adapt to economic pressures, whilst remaining compliant with employment law, will thwart growth and competitiveness.

After attending, you will receive a plethora of useful contractual clauses that can be used to build flexibility and safeguards into your employment contracts.

You will be able to use those clauses to:

  • lawfully handle contractual variation
  • minimise legal challenges when terminating a contract of employment
  • build flexibility into your employment contracts in accordance with strategic fit
  • safeguard your organisation through the inclusion of lawful and reasonable clauses in the terms and conditions of the employment contract

The event is a must for any organisation either looking to update their contracts of employment in 2018 or looking to introduce organisational change.

More value from this event

The event will include a session on utilising the key principles of successful change management to help the organisation and the employee navigate contractual changes successfully. The session will be delivered by Edwin O’Hora of OHORA Consulting and will focus on the practical aspects of generating successful outcomes from these types of potentially challenging conversations.

Included in your pack of detailed and comprehensive notes, delegates will receive complimentary sample contractual clauses and templates for use when revising and updating your contracts of employment.

This event is brought to you by Legal-Island in association with McDowell Purcell who have kindly offered to provide a free 30-minute legal consultation to delegates who sign up for a consultation on the day.
