Aiding Business Owners with Employment Agreements and Rights
In the State of Texas, employee and employer relationships are what is known as “at will.” This essentially means that employers or employees are free to terminate employment for any reason, and without penalty. However, employment contracts change all of this.
Employment contracts are designed to spell out the terms and conditions of an employee/employer relationship. This may include items such as how an employee will be compensated, exact duties and performance requirements of the employed individual, any benefits involved, as well as what the grounds are for termination of the employment agreement.
Naturally, this can get very complex very quickly. And not adhering the terms of the contract leaves both the employer and employee open to breach of contract should either party not fulfill an end of the agreement. This is why it is so important to work with an attorney who specializes in employment matters for businesses, to ensure that you and your business are legally protected from the very start.
Setting Business Owners Up for Success with Employment Contracts
If you are a new business owner or even have an established business, it’s always a good idea to seek legal counsel when engaging in any employment matter. Doing so ensures that any employment contracts you offer new employees are full proof and contain all the necessary language to make sure that you and your business are protected.
As a business owner, the last thing you want is a disgruntled former employee raising suit against you or your business for something that could have been easily avoided had the proper employment contract been set up in the first place.
