Expertise

A well-drafted employment contract is an important foundation for effectively managing employees. SWS Lawyers regularly reviews existing employment contracts for our clients to ensure that they are up to date and adequately protect the employer’s interests. Employment law is constantly changing, and we help our clients ensure that their employment contracts are kept up to date. We also draft employment contracts tailored to meet the needs of our clients. In addition, we prepare employment contracts for executives, addressing a number of issues that arise with respect to high-level employees, such as bonus arrangements, incentives and restraints. We also regularly work in cooperation with our Corporate and Commercial team in reviewing and providing advice in the context of commercial transactions.

SWS Lawyers also drafts and reviews employment contracts in conjunction with workplace policies and procedures. This provides our clients with a suite of up-to-date employment documents that align effectively and can be rolled out across the business.

We assist our clients put effective workplace policies into place, which provide a helpful framework for the employer’s expectations as to how employees are to act in the workplace. They also provide a useful performance management tool and can assist with managing various aspects of the workplace including taking leave, managing complaints and workplace surveillance.

Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
