When to Use the Employment Agreement
This Agreement governs the relationship between a Consulting Firm and an Employee. Use this Agreement whenever hiring a "W2" employee, particularly
when confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements are required.
What It Protects
The Employment Contract protects your intellectual property rights and confidential information whenever hiring a new employee. It establishes
your relationship as “employment at will,” lessening the chances of an unfair termination claim. This Employment Agreement also imposes non-compete and
non-hire provisions, prohibiting an exiting employee from stealing your clients or workers.
In addition to the provisions that help protect your company in the case of confidential information, termination, and non-compete specifications, our
Employment Agreement also helps you detail the compensation the employee will receive in exchange for work performed. This may include compensation
provisions, such as: employee benefits, expense management, and severability so that employees know what they can expect upfront, as well as what is
expected of them.
