Who Can Benefit From Advice on Employment Agreements
Business Owners: Custom contracts can help you anticipate and avoid any potential problems. Depending on your field of work, you may need to include specific provisions for confidentiality, competition, and solicitation. We can also help you decide if, in addition to a standard employment agreement, you need additional non-solicitation and non-compete agreements.
Employees: If you’re concerned about the provisions included in your employment agreement, or if you are being asked to sign a non-compete, non-disclosure, or non-solicitation agreement, let us review your contract. We can help you determine what your legal rights are and what the contract means for you and for your line of work.
Consultants and Independent Contractors: When you work for yourself, contracting with businesses who may have proprietary processes or patented products, you will likely run into confidentiality, non-solicitation, and non-compete clauses in any employment agreement. What does that mean for you as an independent contractor–and how does that affect your livelihood? At Hale & Messina, we can review any prospective contracts and help you decide what, if any, changes you should negotiate to protect your rights.
