What should be covered in an employment agreement for a senior employee?

The employment agreement for a senior employee will likely be longer and more sophisticated than an employment contract for a more junior employee.  A senior employee’s contract will contain additional terms which may not be applicable for a junior employee, including:

  • notice period: a longer notice period to be given to terminate the employment
  • probation: no probationary period of employment
  • directorship: obligation to act as a company director if required by the company
  • bonus: discretionary or contractual bonus entitlement
  • benefits: additional benefits, for example company car allowance, medical insurance and permanent health insurance
  • intellectual property: provisions regarding the ownership of intellectual property created during the employment
  • garden leave: right for the company to put the employee on garden leave during any period of notice
  • restrictive covenants: post-termination restrictive covenants from the employee
