As a business owner, you may have employees. If you you do, you will at some point have an employment law issue that arises. We can advise you about whether and when you should enter into employment agreements or require your employees to sign non-compete agreements, non-disclosure/ confidentiality agreements, non-solicit agreements, trade secret agreements and/or separation agreements. We are experienced at drafting and enforcing these types of agreements on behalf of business owners like you, so that they conform with applicable law and protect your rights and business interests to the maximum extent allowed by law.
If after entering into any of these types of agreements, your employee breaches his/her agreement with you, our attorneys are experienced at pursuing litigation to enforce these types of agreements to ensure your business's trade secrets, proprietary information, client lists, and unique practices and procedures are protected and remain confidential.
We can also advise you about, draft, and/or revise policy and procedure manuals, training procedures for your employees. Our lawyers also routinely defend employers like you from claims made by employees like wage claims and claims based on unlawful employment discrimination or harassment.
