Fromberg Edelstein Fromberg’s attorneys advise businesses as they create documents and agreements that govern how employment relationships are established, defined and terminated. Written properly, such documents and agreements can protect a business from liability exposure or other threats to productivity.
Documentation begins with an employment application that seeks an appropriate breadth and depth of information from job candidates. It continues through the hiring process, as employers frequently draft offer letters and execute employment contracts. Such contracts can include confidentiality agreements, as well as restrictive covenants, also known as non-competition and non-solicitation agreements. Restrictive covenants in particular provide added protection for businesses and their customers or clients by prohibiting employees from taking advantage of a business’s customer data, trade secrets or intellectual property. At the end of an employment relationship, having proper termination, separation or severance agreements in place is equally important.
Our attorneys often assist employers as they develop employment agreements, keeping an eye to enforceability so as to discourage violations.
