Employment Agreement/Handbook Attorney

In this day and age, job seekers expect a lot from their employer. Similarly, employers should have certain expectations for the people that represent their business. When employing anywhere from one to hundreds of people, it’s important not to leave anything to chance. Having employment agreements created for each individual or individual group within your company will inform and protect you, your business and your employees.

Employment contracts can vary between individuals or types of employees, so it’s impossible to create a one-size-fits-all template. However, there are a few key points that every agreement should have.

Job Information
This field includes information on responsibilities, expectations, and performance.

Compensation and Benefits
Details on commissions, bonuses, hourly versus salary, and other issues should be addressed here to avoid any miscommunication.

Time Off
How many days of vacation do you offer? Does that number increase with seniority? Are “sick days” viewed the same as “vacation days”? All of these questions should be answered in the Employee Agreement or Handbook because they will inevitably come up.

Professionally Drafted Employment Agreements

There are many bases to cover when drafting an employment agreement or handbook, and addressing each of those items is critical. If a conflict arises between an employer and employee, the employment agreement and handbook are the first point of reference for finding the answer. If something is missing or if an item is stated in the contract and not honored, it could lead to problems.
