Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and will be able to resolve your legal problem today.
Regarding the site’s automatic offer of a Premium Service Phone Call, I shall be delighted to talk with you by phone to discuss your issue in greater detail if you accept the offer. However, if you do not want a phone call, please cancel the offer for a Premium Service Phone Call and you will not be charged extra.
If you want to vary the terms of an existing employee's contract of employment, these variations must be expressly agreed between the parties, or the variation will be ineffective and unenforceable.
There is nothing inherently unreasonable or illegal about an exclusivity clause, so they are enforceable in employment contracts.
I recommend that you draft a revised version of the employee's contract of employment and highlight the changes and invite them to sign it once they have taken their own independent legal advice.
In that case, ensure that the exclusivity clause is present in the new contract and there should be no problem.
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you have any further questions and I will be delighted to assist.
Otherwise, I shall be grateful if you will please mark your enquiry as “Closed” and give me a “Positive” rating in order to conclude this matter.
