As we`ve seen, it`s likely that your company`s admins are employees of the company, just like other members of your team. In addition, the Companies Act and other laws set out certain specific responsibilities of officers. That`s why it`s important that each manager has a service contract tailored to the specific work they do, especially when your company is listed. The notice period with which your employment relationship can be terminated is a very long contract period. On the one hand, when the employer resigns, you will need enough time to find a new job. Conversely, if you decide to leave and be exempted to start a new job, you may not want to be bound by a long notice. We will gladly advise you on options and will assist you in all negotiations. Because your administrators have privileged access to your confidential information, intellectual property, customer lists, and technical information, you also need to ensure that this information is protected. Perhaps you would also like to make sure that if a manager leaves your company, their ability to work for a competitor is limited at least for a certain period of time. An employment contract for directors usually contains the following provisions, each of which plays an important role in supporting the relationship between the director and the company: the applicable laws and regulations on employment contracts are labour law and employment contract law.
The applicable laws and regulations relating to service contracts are civil law and contract law. An employment contract may provide that all IP rights created by the worker belong to the employer. While this is appropriate where such IP rights are created as part of your employment obligations for that employer, care should be taken to ensure that the clause is not overly broad. For example, if you have a secondary activity or interests outside the employment covered by the contract, you must ensure that you do not give, if any, IP rights that are not applicable outside of your employment obligations. For example, if you carry out activities outside the workplace that have nothing to do with your work (for example.B. music, design, computer work). You should ensure that these aspects remain your property and not that of your employer. In practice, we continue to see many client administrators who do not have written employment contracts, and those who do have a document that is not fit for purpose. These include administrators who have basic written contracts adapted to a Junior Office, or even presentation documents that have never been finalized. In the absence of clear and well-articulated obligations in a service contract for directors, former directors are free to leave the company and work for a competitor. . .
