Why get employment contracts
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.
Confirm your legal compliance
Employment law carries a series of rules with it. Violating a law or duty that you owe to an employee or can have expensive repercussions. The assistance of an employment contract lawyer can quiet these concerns.

Some companies will implement a template found online to use as an employment agreement. This carries risk as every employment contract should have unique terms to reflect that particular relationship.
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.
Are employment agreements the same as independent contractor agreements?
Not exactly, but they’re similar. You can find independent contractor agreements here.

“I was very comfortable with the environment it was my first meeting and I knew it was on the right track I did understand my lawyer I was listening I did absorb the information given to me.”

“Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.”
