Employment In Sport

Labour Law

In a sporting context, employment and labour law issues often arise in respect of sports employment contracts and terms, sports agent contracts, sports league rules, restraint of trade, transfers, salary caps, termination, grievance procedures and redundancies.

Further, the international nature of sport means that sports employment issues often necessarily require consideration of international sporting rules and regulations. 

How can we help?

Our sports lawyers have experience in a wide range of sports employment and labour law matters and are able to provide comprehensive expert advice in relation to all of the above ways in which employment issues can arise in the sporting context. For sporting organisations, this could involve us creating contracts or policies to be used within your sport, or advising or acting on the behalf of your organisation in an employment dispute with an employee. For individuals, this could include advising on an employment contract you are about to sign or your rights and obligations under an existing contract, amongst other things.
