An employment contract review requires a comprehensive legal review of the employment relationship, Modern Awards and Enterprise Agreements and the terms of the written contract.
At Prosper Law, we understand the importance of employment contracts for employers and employees. That’s why we offer a comprehensive contract review service to ensure that your employment contract is legally sound and beneficial to you.
Our team of experienced employment lawyers negotiate employment contracts across various industries. We understand the complexities of employment law.
Whether you are an employer or an employee, our employment review services will ensure that your contract meets your expectations and protects your rights.
Our fixed fee legal services mean that you will know exactly how much you are paying from the start. With Prosper Law, there are no surprises when it comes to legal fees.
We offer a free, 15-minute consultation. During this call, we will take the time to understand your legal matter. We will then provide you with a scope of work and a fixed-fee quote.
Some senior and executive roles may be covered by a Modern Award or Enterprise Agreement. Often, executive employees are provided with a long form employment contract. It is important for executive agreements to be reviewed and negotiated by experienced employment lawyers.
Most senior appointments do not have access to unfair dismissal remedies. This means that the written terms are particularly important. Without a proper review from an expert employment lawyer, you could find yourself agreeing to terms that limit your rights if your employment is terminated.
Our team of lawyers come from different industry backgrounds, and all are experienced when it comes to workplace law.

While we can write anything you like into an employment contract, there are some terms that may go against our advice.
Many employment contracts contain terms that are unenforceable or may even be misleading and deceptive. For example, under the Competition and Consumer Act, it is unlawful for employers to make false representations to candidates.
Common Law contracts are often used in Australia. They are used as a basis for the employment relationship and can include written and unwritten terms.
A key feature of a Common Law employment contract includes that it can offer flexibility for workers and companies to negotiate contract terms.
While Common Law contracts provide flexibility, they must still comply with the minimum employment standards. These are set out in the Fair Work Act 2009 and include things such as minimum wage, maximum working hours, and leave entitlements.
An employment contract lawyer can provide further advice about the terms of a Common Law contract.
Generally, an employer will own the intellectual property that is created during the course of a worker’s employment. An employment contract will often expressly state this.
In addition, the Copyright Act 1988 states that if an employee creates work and that work is under the employer’s direction or control, the employer is the first owner of the copyright. Copyright is, however, only one form of intellectual property.
Employment contract reviews will outline who owns the IP and how it can be used.
