Hi BenI reviewed to contract and it's very good. Just have few questions:
1. the previous contract was in the form of letter to the employee. I personally prefer the one you just prepared with the title page. Can I modify the previous one to have the same title page or there was any particular reason to have it as a letter?
2. it the statement on clause 10.3 required by law or we can remove it? For now I would prefer the employee to be paid just the statutory sick pay. - "After the Employee has completed [[NUMBER] month[s'] continuous service OR his probationary period], subject to his compliance with this agreement, the Employee shall be entitled to receive his full salary and contractual benefits during any periods of sickness absence up to a maximum of [NUMBER] weeks in any [NUMBER]-week period. Those payments shall be inclusive of any SSP due."3. In the previous contract we had very detailed clause 10 to avoid the situation when my employee take over my clients. In this I found just the clause 15.2 saying about this. Is it enough protection for my company? Do you have access to my previous questions with the other contract or you want me to attach it here?Thank you and regards

Hello, there is no difference if there is a title page or ir is a letter so you are ablemto modify that if you wanted to. Sick pay you are free to keep at SSP rates for as long as you want, this clause was just optional. The restrictions i included in clause 15.2 as that is the specific restriction you wanted. To be honest i very much doubt any court would allow you to enforce a 5 year restriction but it is there as a deterrent more than anything.
