    Employment Agreements – A Sword and a Shield for Employers

    Friday 27th October 2017, 11.00am ADST

    Employment agreements lay out the ground rules of the relationship between employer and employee.

    Well-drafted employment agreements provide an employer with greater power and control over matters such as remuneration, employee duties and termination. Employment agreements also promote compliance and consistency with the Fair Work Act 2009 and relevant modern awards.

    Just as importantly, well-drafted employment agreements can protect the employer’s business via confidential information, intellectual property and restraint provisions, and reduce the risk of employee disputes or dismissal claims.

    In this webinar, Matthews Folbigg lawyer Peter Doughman explains the ‘essential ingredients’ for employment agreements, and describes how employers can prepare watertight employment agreements to protect against employee claims and disputes.
