Utilizing Employment Agreements to Protect your Company’s Valuable Assets
The right employment contract should protect the rights of employee and employer. From noncompete agreements to compensation, bonus, and commission structures, you want an attorney who knows what you should expect from the process. At Krevsky Bowser,, we have handled every aspect of these matters, from negotiating terms to drafting language to litigating disputes. We can help you come up with creative solutions tailored to your specific situation.
One of the best ways to avoid employment disputes is to develop contracts that clearly lay out the rights and obligations of all parties involved. We help employers develop contracts that work straight from the beginning, so their rights will be protected down the road if disputes arise.
Executive & Professional Employment Agreements
Executive employment contracts generally contain more expansive terms and conditions than an ordinary employment agreement. Such agreements typically address issues such as compensation, duties and responsibilities of the executive, restrictive covenants, triggering events for termination of employment, severance terms, and the parties’ responsibilities to each other following separation of employment.
Non-compete Agreements and Other Restrictive Covenants
Employers invest in their employees and often entrust them with confidential or trade secret information important to the employer’s business. Many employers choose to protect these assets through the use of restrictive covenants in employment agreements. Restrictive covenants can take different forms, such as:
- Non-compete agreements, in which the employee agrees to refrain from working for a competitor of the employer for a specified period of time after the employment relationship ends
- Non-solicitation agreements, in which the employee agrees not to do business with the particular customers of the employer for a period of time after the employment relationship ends
- Non-raiding agreements, in which the employee agrees not to hire away the employer’s valued employees
- Non-disclosure agreements, in which the employee agrees not to disclose or otherwise use the employer’s confidential, proprietary, or trade secret information
The decision of how to tailor restrictive covenant agreements to ensure they are enforceable involves careful consideration of various factors. Our attorneys work with employers to tailor these agreements to fit the client’s specific business needs.
