Sound employment contracts are critical to the success and continued growth of a company, but drafting, negotiating and enforcing employment agreements can be complicated for many business owners.
At Kisner Law Firm, LLC, our attorneys provide valuable guidance in framing your employment relationships with strategic employment contracts and agreements. We will evaluate your employment needs and help you determine the types of contracts needed to protect your business interests.
Employment Contracts That Protect Your Business Interests
Establishing sound employment agreements upfront can save both the employer and the employee from confusion in the future, as well as potential legal disputes or litigation. Our firm provides assistance in the creation and enforcement of any type of employment agreement your company requires, including:
- Noncompete agreements
- Nondisclosure agreements
- Separation agreements
- Severance agreements
- Release agreements
Our firm also provides guidance to companies relying on independent contractor labor and talent. Contractors are different from typical employees in that they set themselves forth as independent professionals who are to work for the company for a limited amount of time, usually for the duration of a project or a specific period.
It is important that independent contractors are hired with a specific agreement that outlines how the contractor will be paid and clarifies that he or she will be responsible for their own taxes. It should also outline the terms of the engagement and how it could be ended. Generally, contractors are not covered by workers' compensation or unemployment insurance.
