How much do you know about employment contracts? Do you know when - and when not - to use them? Do you know what they should - and should not - contain?
In this episode, we talk about the ins and outs of employment contracts with Janette Levey Frisch. We discuss some common misconceptions about employment contracts, situations when employment contracts are a good idea, and how to use employment contracts to define ownership of intellectual property and to protect confidentiality. We talk about the basics of non-compete agreements and the questions employers should ask when considering a non-compete. We also discuss arbitration clauses, whether they really streamline the process, save employers time and money, and what to consider when thinking aout building an arbitration clause in to your employment contracts.
