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?

For sporting organisations this could involve the creation of contracts or policies, or advising or acting on behalf of your organisation. For individuals this could include advising on your rights and obligations under an existing or future employment contract.
