Employment Law: Setting up the Employment relationship for success
This session will focus on what an employer needs to consider and put in place before entering into a relationship with either an employee or an independent contractor. It is important that the terms of the relationship are contained in an enforceable written contract. The matters to be addressed in the contract include compensation (e.g. salary, commissions, bonuses, etc.), restrictive covenants, intellectual property, company policies, and terminations. When matters are not addressed in a written contract, unexpected disputes can quickly arise.
