Growing your business to the point of hiring employees is a very exciting thing. Whether you are a small business or a large company, if you have employees it is in your best interest to have an employee manual and individual employment contracts. An employment contract may be written or oral, and can avoid many misunderstandings between an employer and its workers. The contract, whether it is with an employee or independent contractor, may define company policy, clarify many employee questions, include a confidentiality clause, and protect employers from future litigation in many cases. Because an employment contract is so important, it is not recommended that an employer attempt to draft one itself. Yash Law Group can draft personalized employee or independent contractor agreements on behalf of any employer for an hourly or flat fee. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
