Employment & Independent Contractor Agreements
Employment agreements are minefields…
An effective employment agreement is like a viper in the grass. It is written in friendly, disarming language while quietly invoking powerful legal rights, giving the drafter an immense legal and financial upper hand. It’s often accompanied by a short window of opportunity to accept, incentives such as signing bonuses, and scare tactics such as telling you that someone else is ready to sign and get your spot.
We understand that you don’t have unlimited time or bargaining power and we can give you a very quick turnaround. We’ll help you to understand what it is that you are agreeing to and let you know which risks are marginal, moderate and severe so you can just bring up the few most costly and damaging issues. We’ll also let you know what the industry accepted compromise language is. We have seen countless employment agreements and are familiar with many industries.
