Contractual issues

Contact SeafarerHelp if you think your employer has broken or ignored the terms of your contract, or if you have a general concern. We understand that contractual disputes can be complex and daunting in all cases.

To help avoid contractual disputes you should ensure the following:

  • You have signed a written employment contract before joining the ship
  • You understand all of the terms in your contract before you sign it
  • No important information -  such as details of wages -  is missing from the contract before you sign it
