Increasingly we have seen the need for the law to adapt to changing working practices - so that your team are fully engaged but also so that your agreements properly reflect the reality of the situation - this is key to protecting your organisation from financial and legal risk.
We can ensure you have the correct documentation in place, tailored to your organisation, to protect the business both at the start and end of the relationship whilst ensuring that it retains the flexibility to meet its goals.
Well drafted documentation is key to your organisation achieving its goals. Being clear about the type of relationship and each parties’ rights and duties at the outset can prevent disputes later on and, if issues do arise, give the organisation the ability to manage them effectively with the least disruption possible.
We take time to understand your business and consider how best to protect it contractually, taking into account what you are seeking to achieve. We then provide bespoke documentation to achieve that protection and give you the flexibility to manage your teams to meet the goals of your business, from consultancy agreements through to zero hour contracts.
We will regularly carry out audits of your working practices to ensure your documentation remains relevant, legally compliant and suitable for your industry and your workforce, particularly in light of developments such as IR35.
