Employees are the most important resource for any company. If that resource is mismanaged, however, then employees can also become a great source of liability. Failing to clearly define the terms and scope of employment can lead to multiple disputes with the worker, potential liability, and being on record as a labor law violator. California companies can avoid these issues by properly negotiating and drafting a contract between themselves and an employee. Our Santa Ana attorneys assist with the drafting of employment contracts on behalf of employers. Call our office today to speak with a lawyer.

Orange County lawyers drafting employment agreements for businesses in Santa Ana, Anaheim, Irvine and elsewhere
An employment contract can serve many purposes for a California business. First, they can clearly define the length of employment and/or terms of compensation which, in turn, will help protect the company from wage and hour disputes as well as independent contractor disputes. Second, an agreement can clearly define the responsibilities of the worker which can help protect the employer from a wrongful termination suit. Also, employment contracts can help protect an employer from third-party liability in the event that an employee takes action outside the scope of their employment and someone is harmed as a result. When drafting an agreement it is important to have all possibilities and contingencies in mind. Having an attorney to help you prepare the document can help improve its effectiveness.
