Employment Contract Lawyers 

Find employment contract lawyers to solidify your working relationships


An employment contract lawyer can help you legally bind a contract between an employer and employee. It’s helpful to use an employment contract or get an employment contract review if you are hiring a new employee and want to specify rights and obligations like salary, benefits, and hours. It’s also common to see provisions covering confidentiality, noncompetition, and invention assignments. Although an employment contract or employment contract review isn’t required, relying on an oral agreement with your employees can cause problems. It’s important to document things so that everyone is on the same page. What is most important to understand is that as with most contracts, there are advantages and disadvantages for each term so it’s important to draft and review it correctly.

Common Questions

Is it necessary to use employment contracts for my employees?
No not at all, but it’s a great look for HR purposes. It’s important for employers and employees to be on the same page. An employment agreement is the perfect tool to nail down the terms of employment so that no ambiguities exist.
As an employer, should I have an employment agreement for my at-will employees?
An increasing number of employers are utilizing employment agreements in order to document the at-will relationship. It’s difficult for employees to argue they have rights such as only being terminated for just cause if they sign an agreement in the beginning that describes that they are only at-will employees. 
Can I use a “do it yourself” or template website?
Those sites have major limitations, largely in that their forms are standardized and may leave out important details specific to your company. Because employment contracts are legally binding, it’s encouraged for employers to use employment contracts that are custom drafted.
