Employment Contract review
Employment contract Australia
Congratulations on being offered a new job! Before you accept and sign the employment contract or letter of offer, it’s good practice to have the offer reviewed to check:
- the salary is right;
- the employer can not change your position or duties without talking to you about it first;
- the bonus arrangement looks like what you discussed;
- the notice period gives you enough time to find other work; and
- the post-employment restraints are fair, valid and enforceable.
Our experienced lawyers can provide you with advice in relation to all aspects of your employment contract, including suggesting necessary amendments to protect your interests. The best way to protect your rights is to understand them going into the contract. By having your employment contract reviewed, we can ensure that your rights are protected to improve job security and reduce any risks which may jeopardise you in the future.
If you would like your contract reviewed you can upload your contract here and we will be in touch with a fixed fee quote. We can typically turn your contract review around in 1-3 business days.

Having your contract of employment reviewed before, during or after your employment is an important step in understanding your rights and obligations.
Some contracts contain post-employment obligations including confidentiality and restraint of trade provisions. An employer is entitled to rely on these if you agree to them; however they must do no more than is reasonable to protect their business interests. If you believe your restraint goes further than is reasonable, you should seek legal advice.
You should ensure that any amount to be paid to you under your contract is in compliance with the relevant legislation, modern award or enterprise agreement. If it is, and you wish to ask for more you can!
“The staff at Resolution123 understood the time factor required to turn around my situation and responded accordingly. Resolution123 were given clear instructions on what was required and they were able to focus on those instructions and determine a suitable response within a tight deadline. The attitude was to rectify a poorly written Employment Contract rather than leaving the potential open for future proceedings.”

The Whole Truth: are you an employee or independent contractor?
The rise of the gig economy has led to more and more people working flexible jobs in the services or hospitality industry. The appeal of these kinds of jobs is that they can act as a supplement to a person’s primary income and they can choose when and when not to work. The Klooger v Foodora Australia decision handed down by the Fair Work Commission in November 2018 has cast doubt on the legal protections offered to those in rideshare services, and it is important to be aware of your legal rights.
