The topic of Employment Agreements has been one well discussed among employers and employees for many years. Employment Agreements, if well drafted, protect both employers and employees.
As an employer, the question is whether Employment Agreements are worth spending the time and money to create. As an employer, you want your employees to know as much detail as possible, as to what you expect from them for them to meet your goals and objectives.
In addition, you want an employee to know the consequences of failing to meet those goals and objectives. Furthermore, from a liability standpoint, you want it clear to your employees what behavior is acceptable in the workplace and what behavior is not. Therefore, it would be beneficial for you to speak to an employment attorney to create a well drafted employment agreement.
As an employee, the question is whether or not you want to sign an agreement with your employer. As an employee, you want to make sure that you fully understand what is expected of you to succeed in your new job and to ensure it is the right job for you. You also want to know clearly what you need to do in order to succeed at your job.
In addition, you need to what occurs if you are unable to meet your employer’s goals and objectives. Finally, you need to know the company’s basic rules and regulations. Asan employee starting a new job or being asked to sign employment agreement with an existing job, it would be beneficial for you to speak to an attorney to make sure you fully understand the agreement you may be signing
When you enter into an agreement with someone, it is extremely important that the terms and conditions of the agreement are clearly stated in a well written document. Many agreements are traditionally referred to as “Contracts”.
In many ways, a contract tells a story.
The beginning of all contracts starts the same way, with listing ofthe people or entities who are going to be bound by the contract. The middle of the contract sets forth the terms and conditions of the agreement as well as the penalties for failure to comply with the agreement. The ending of every agreement traditionally refers to the fact that the agreement encompasses and overrides all prior agreements relating to the topic between the parties. The end of the Contract also has a place for the parties to sign for themselves or their company.
Therefore, the middle
of the contract is the most significant part of the contract. Prior to having any contract drafted, you should make a list of all of the understandings and the agreements made between you and the parties. You should also set forth which state’s law will govern the contract which is usually the location and/or state that at least one of the parties is located in.
you should also state whereall disputes are to be resolved and by what mechanism, i.e. litigation or arbitration.The drafting of a well-written contract is not an easy task. Your attorney will work with you to ask you theright questions to ensure that the contract meet your expectations, limits your liability, clearly spells out your understanding with the parties, and discusses with you the best mechanism for resolving disputes. Your attorney will then take all of that information and put it into a well drafted contract.
