Employment agreements are important for explaining employee compensation, duties, employer expectations, vacation time, whether employment is guaranteed for a period of time or is “at will”, and other important issues. Protect your time and your business by ensuring that you have properly drafted employment agreements.
Independent Contractor Agreements
If you are hiring a person only as an independent contractor and not as an employee, an essential first step is to have an appropriate independent contractor agreement in place. A properly drafted agreement will not guarantee a finding of independent contractor status should that become an issue, but it will go a long way in making a case in your favor.

Noncompete and Nondisclosure Agreements
Proprietary knowledge and business-specific practices are among a business’s most important and valuable assets. For that reason, business owners and operators must protect these knowledge assets. Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements can play and important role in a company’s knowledge-asset protection strategy because they limit a former employee’s ability to take that information and use it to the disadvantage of the company. Hendricks Law Firm PLLC regularly prepares such agreements and can effectively assist you with meeting your needs and protecting your confidential company information.
Employee handbooks are an essential component for making sure that employees and contractors understand company policies and procedures. It is also essential that any such handbooks are properly drafted and include appropriate employee acknowledgements.
