After your business is up and running, you may need to hire employees to help you. Generally, when you hire an employee they are considered “employees at will” which means that you can fire them at any time for any reason, other than one that is against public policy. Other times it may be better to have an employment agreement in place to protect your business interest. An employee subject to an employment agreement can still be classified as an “employee at will” but can include various other provisions such as restrictive covenants, spelling out expectations and benefits, or provide a means for the employee to become a stakeholder in the business. Our attorneys are experienced in drafting employment agreements in many different business environments.
