Employee contracts are a smart move for Nevada businesses

As a business owner, you understand how important it is to have good relationships with your employees. Despite your best efforts, however, you may experience times when employees are disgruntled, sometimes leading to legal disputes. These can be stressful and costly, and it's smart to work to avoid them any way you can.

One way you can avoid litigation is to have strong and thoughtful employee contracts. These agreements can specifically outline the role and expectations of both employees and employers, which can reduce confusion and leave less room for misinterpretation. These contracts can also be quite useful in the event that you do find yourself in a legal dispute with a person who works for you.

Three types of agreements 

Every company has different types of goals and objectives for their employees, and every type of employment contract will be different. The right contract for your business should suit your needs and address your specific concerns for the type of business you run. You may want to consider the addition of some of the following types of clauses and agreements for your employment contracts:

  • Non-compete clause – A non-compete clause prevents employees from leaving your company to start a directly competing company or work for a direct competitor.
  • Non-solicitation agreement – This agreement will prevent a disgruntled employee who is leaving from taking other employees with him or her or encouraging them to leave your company.
  • Arbitration agreement – This is a clause that will mandate that all disputes between employees and employers will go through arbitration first before heading to litigation.

When you take the time to ensure that your employee contracts are thorough, you will have the protection you need to avoid problems and handle them when they arise. It is smart to work with a legal professional when drafting these agreements so you will have an agreement that will withstand potential scrutiny.

The right contract for your company 

Before you have your employees sign a contract or draft an agreement, you may want to seek guidance from an experienced Nevada business law attorney. With the right help, you can have contracts that will protect the interests of your company and provide security for your employees as well. An assessment of your case can help you understand the legal options available to you and how you should proceed.
