Contracting with employees is an essential part of building a secure and enduring business, and having these written agreements makes future negotiation and management of potential disputes much simpler and easier to manage. As such, the preparation and execution of these contracts should always be conducted with the support of a legal professional, as the language included in the contract must be able to withstand any disputes or challenges brought against the company in the future.
At Slater Pugh, Ltd.

Elements Of Employee Contracts
While typical employee contracts will involve many of the basic components, such as wage, hours, commission, bonuses and the like, there are a number of other elements which a well written contract will include in order to clearly protect the company against future situations and circumstances. The following are a few of the key elements which we can help you define in your employee contracts:
- Severance conditions
- Severance compensation
- Confidentiality agreements
- Noncompete agreements
- Nonsolicitation agreements
As a company, a large part of your success rides on the contracts you have with employees. As such, making sure that these contracts provide clear responsibilities and liabilities for everyone involved is important, both for preventing disputes from arising and for protecting you in the event that they do arise.
