Employment Contracts & Workplace Policies

Employment Contracts

Writing your employment contract

All employers need quality employment contracts. What’s a quality employment contract? Choosing our top 5 points, a quality employment contract:

  1. Clearly defines the employee’s responsibilities;
  2. Sets out their entitlements;
  3. Complies with relevant modern awards;
  4. Protects the employer’s confidential information; and
  5. Prohibits the employee from leaving and taking the employers customers and staff.

Call us on (08) 6180 1959 at no cost or send us an email to discuss having a standard contract written for you to use as many times as you like.

We can do the work in a week (or even quicker if you’re in a real hurry) for a fixed fee.

The worst thing about having no employment contract, or a bad one, is the risk of a bad egg employee leaving and taking your customers or staff. Why spend months or years developing a relationship between a top client and your business and then have an employee just walk off with them when they leave?

Workplace Policies

What workplace policies do you have in your business?

Do you have workplace policies at all?

In this day and age, for employers, workplace policies are essential. Skimp on this and:

  1. You are at a disadvantage every time you have to address harassment, racism, discrimination or bullying;
  2. Your ability to easily remove staff for drug and alcohol impairment is greatly reduced;
  3. Your right to monitor staff emails and internet use is questionable; and
  4. Your ability to sanction staff for defaming your business on social media is minimal.
    There are many issues on which employers need proper policies to allow them to protect their business from the consequences of inability to quickly and effectively address the matters above.
