It is strongly advised that players should consult the PCA on any disciplinary issues associated with their clubs or contracts.

The PCA offers employment legal advice to all its members on the following:

Contract Negotiations

Commercial Contracts

Loan System Advice

Disciplinary Advice

The PCA formally adopts a Legal Policy and Protocol to indicate in the clearest terms to all its members, whether past playing members or present, what our policy will be in relation to matters of legal advice, potential and continued representation and support in litigation, ethics and compliance.

 

The PCA has three core areas in which it will seek to assist its members namely disciplinary matters, employment matters and commercial matters.

  • The PCA will seek to provide all reasonable support and advice relating to all disciplinary matters to which a member is subject to from the First Class Counties, WEDS, ECB, the ICC or any other cricket board or other disciplinary process.
  • The PCA will seek to provide all reasonable support and advice relating to all cricket and cricket related employment matters to which a member is subject to from the employer where present, future or historic.
  • The PCA will seek to provide reasonable support and advice relating to all cricket related commercial matters including intellectual property matters to which a member is subject to which are related to the members career in cricket or related areas.

If you are seeking confidential advice on any issue, cricket related or not, please view the below PCA Legal Policy and Protocol document below.

In 2020, the PCA also reviewed its service in terms of guidance and support around employment contracts, and has put an updated policy in place to provide clarity on the Association’s involvement in this area, which you can also access below.
