Dealing with employment contracts from inception to litigation

Many positions held in small businesses here in Texas and elsewhere require agreements between employer and employee. These employment contracts can contain any number of provisions that need to be negotiated. Along with the issues of pay, vacation and other incentives, the parties will also need to include provisions that will govern how the parties will proceed in the event that a dispute arises between the parties.

Parties are often able to come to terms regarding benefits much more easily than the parts of the agreement that cover severance, noncompete agreements and termination. These are most likely the most important clauses in an employment contract. The philosophy that encourages people to hope for the best while preparing for the worst should be the driving force behind the negotiations.

Coming to an agreement that both parties are satisfied with can take some time. Having an attorney present to provide you with advice and assistance with the legal aspects of the contract would be beneficial. Understanding the legal and business ramifications of each decision made could help you make better choices. In the beginning of a working relationship, the parties are rightfully optimistic about the future and could be hesitant to consider that the relationship could become strained.

It might be useful to view the clauses of an employment contract that provide for the possibility of litigation as an insurance policy. Whether you are the employer or the employee, a Texas employment law attorney can help you. More information regarding employment contracts and other matters is available on our website.
