Employment Contracts: What to Include and What to Avoid

Protect your company and keep compliant with a solid employment contract in place.

When was the last time your organization reviewed and updated its employment agreements? From commission programs to noncompetes to general employee terms of employment either through the at-will relationship or under a specific length of employment, employers must recognize and understand the enormous complexity associated with these agreements. Employers are increasingly being pulled into costly litigation over ill-advised or poorly prepared employment agreements. This topic will allow employers to better diminish and avoid employment at will issues, along with wage/hour and compensation/benefit nightmares - while strengthening key terms valued by most employers (such as restrictive covenants, choice of law, remedies upon breach and arbitration).
