Portland Employment Agreement Attorney
Types of Employment Agreements
There are many different types of agreements that can be needed in a work environment, including:
- Nondisclosure (confidentiality) agreements
- Non-compete agreements
- Severance and separation agreements
- Compensation agreements
A nondisclosure agreement is a contract that addresses the sharing of confidential information between two parties with an agreement not to make that information known to third parties. Non-compete agreements are used to prevent an employee who leaves a company from engaging in business activities that would compete with their former employer. Severance agreements are contracts that define the benefits a person will receive when they leave a company. The purpose of a compensation agreement is to establish the terms of a person's employment. Compensation agreements can include information on that nature of the employment, pay, bonuses, stock options, expense reimbursements and severance. It can also include the conditions under which the employee would be terminated.
Employment agreements are an important aspect of the hiring process. Contracts help define the relationship between an employer and employee. They are a form of protection for both parties, and can help prevent disputes and claims at a later point in time. Employees should ensure any employment agreements they are asked to sign are reviewed by a Portland employment lawyer. A skilled attorney can also help businesses prepare any agreements that are needed.
