Written agreements necessary for key employees
Do your employees have a clear understanding as to their employment with your company?
The general rule is that intellectual property created by an employee at work using the business’s assets belong to the employer. But what about the other information your business provides to your employees? When an employee leaves, can she work for a competitor? What expectations of privacy does the employee have concerning emails? If the employee is blogging for the company on social media, can the employee take the followers with her to her next job?
Although an employment agreement may not be necessary for all employees, a business should consider an employee agreement for key employees. We have prepared numerous employment agreements for our clients and can help your business as well.
