Part of establishing a business entity to open your company involves staffing. While you may be sure of your employee needs both now and in the future, well-written and enforceable employment agreements are vital.
Your business is a valuable asset that deserves protection. Employees who try to steal trade secrets, claim rights to intellectual property or leave for a competitor must be held accountable through an employment agreement they signed.
Protecting Business Interests Through Employment Contracts
An employment contract drafted and reviewed by an attorney can spare employers from disgruntled employees breaching agreements. Unwelcome surprises can take the form of a staff member going to the competition or sharing proprietary secrets. The upfront investment can provide significant savings in the future.
Protecting your business interests starts with well-written and effectively negotiated employment contracts that address a variety of issues, including:
- Noncompete agreements
- Nondisclosure agreements
- Rights to inventions and intellectual property
- Severance agreements
- Performance criteria
- Compensation, including stock options and bonuses
- Issues surrounding a resignation or termination
