Strong Advocacy For Employers
As business owners, we all know that we can’t do anything without our employees. Locking down top talent is critical to the success of any business. Well thought out and well-drafted employee contracts can keep the employee happy and the employer safe. Protecting trade secrets and putting in place the proper non-competition and non-solicitation provisions can provide clarity to both employer and employee. With clarity comes less room for an employment lawsuit in Oregon or Washington.
The employment relationship is not static. It is continually shifting, and that’s why it is important to look back at your contracts with key employees from time to time to make sure they’re still relevant and applicable.
