In Negotiating and Drafting Employment Agreements, expert authors present strategies for creating employment agreements that can prevent adverse situations with current or former employees and mitigate issues when they do arise.
Whether it's the CEO of a company or an entry-level worker, almost every employee signs some kind of an agreement when starting a new job. Employment agreements are common, often largely standardized, and yet extremely important: their wording can be responsible for serious decisions years or even decades after the initial signing. At-will employment is the law in many states, but it doesn't cover confidentiality, competition, or liability, any of which can create major problems for a business.
The book's authors cover the need to protect proprietary information, the strategies needed for reducing the likelihood of potential lawsuits, the process of negotiation, and other key concerns when putting together an employment agreement. Lawyers representing employers in human resources issues will find much of value in this book, as highly experienced professionals share their tips and experience.
