Services » Employment Contract Building
A contract is the single most important document in any business relationship. The contract determines the terms and boundaries for everything that will occur within that working relationship. A contract outlines what you receive, what you must give, what you can do if you are dissatisfied and what will happen if the employment relationship ends.
It is for these reasons that it is very important for our clients to have a contract which is built around what is favourable to them. This contract should help them achieve their goals and ambitions, protect their rights in the event they are dissatisfied and cover them in the event of a dispute. It doesn’t matter whether you are an Employer or an Executive or a Manager, the contract is the key to your success.
Based on our experience and our expertise, we are able to ensure that our clients benefit as much as possible from their business relationships.
At OLS, we understand the importance contracts have on our clients’ employment relationships, the success of their businesses and their careers and on their lives. Ultimately, it is important that contracts be built around clients’ ambitions and protecting clients’ interests if there is a problem. There are several important parts to the contractual process and several important services that we are able to provide our clients. Based on our experience and our expertise, we are able to ensure that our clients benefit as much as possible from their business relationships.
Our services include:
- Contractual Negotiation: Negotiation essentially irons out what the deal is. This requires a clear understanding of what the client is hoping to achieve, strong negotiating skills and the ability to understand exactly what the other party is willing to give
- Producing the Contract. It is extremely important that the contract which is produced and signed fairly reflects the terms our client and the other side have agreed on. However, it is also vital that the client be protected from events and potential problems which they have not predicted
- Interpreting the Contract. It is important that the contract mean what our clients think it means. Often, there can be a very sneaky or unfavourable clauses which significantly weakens the client’s position and which the client would never intentionally want to sign. Once signed, it is too late. Therefore, before signing anything, it is important the client know exactly what they are signing and exactly what the effects of signing will be
- Contractual Advice. When facing a confusing or difficult situation, clients will want to know exactly what their rights and options are in a given situation, based on the contract they signed. We are able to help the client identify the best possible course of action
- Contractual re-negotiation. For various reasons, our client’s bargaining position will sometimes improve and there will be the opportunity to re-negotiate and make their contracts significantly more favourable to them
