  • Termination provisions: is it possible to limit an employee’s entitlements to the minimums prescribed by legislation?
  • Fixed-term agreements: are time-limited contracts ever a good idea?
  • Incentives and bonuses: will an employee be entitled to these forms of compensation post-termination?
  • Restrictive covenants: just how restrictive can they be?
  • Amending an agreement: can terms and conditions of employment be revised after a contract is in place?
  • The COVID effect: how has the ongoing pandemic changed the drafting of employment agreements?
