Tailored Comprehensive Employment Contracts For Your Business.

Why Are Contracts Necessary?

Employment contracts are essential in all businesses to ensure that there is clarity on what is expected in the workplace as well as to keep your business legally compliant with it's statutory requirements. Under the Terms of Employment (Information) Acts, 1994 and 2001, employers are required to provide in writing details of specified terms and conditions of employment within two months of commencement of employment and employees may receive 4 weeks salary as compensation for a breach of this requirement.

Useful Contract Clauses

In addition to the minimum statutory details that employers are obliged to provide their employees with there are a number of other essential clauses that should be included in a contract of employment including:

Temporary Contracts

Contracts for temporary employment situations (maternity leave and sick leave cover, project work etc) also have very specific rules and requirements on how they are used as stipulated in the Protection of Employees (Fixed Term Work) Act 2003 and failure to adhere correctly to the strict guidelines on their use can result in costly compensation awards to employees. Legitimate and properly drafted temporary contracts can offer protection to employers against an unfair dismissal claim being brought when a contract is terminated, provided that an unfair dismissal waiver has been included in a written contract detailing the reasons for the temporary contract.

Contracts For Your Business

HR Solutions can draft comprehensive tailored employment contracts for your employees (permanent, part-time, full-time, temporary) detailing all relevant terms and conditions in order to ensure that all aspects of the employment relationship are clearly documented and that you are fully complying with relevant legislation. A detailed employment contract supported by relevant HR procedures in an employee handbook can protect your business from unnecessary litigation and help avoid costly misunderstandings about the obligations of both employers and employees in the workplace.
