St. Louis Employment Contract Lawyer

Experienced St. Louis Business Lawyer Creating Durable Employee Contracts

While most employees are hired at-will—that is, without a contract—certain types of employees and businesses require employment contracts. This is especially true for high-level employees and individuals who will have access to protected information. Putting together the right employment contracts can help ensure stability for your business and its employees, as well as protect your business from liabilities resulting from disputes.

What does an employment contract do?

Employment contracts can cover many different aspects. Executive contracts will often include terms for departure, such as compensation packages or mandatory timelines for giving notice. Another common provision for employment contracts is a non-compete clause. This gives the employer the option to continue to pay an employee a portion of their salary—typically half—in order to prevent the employee from doing similar work for a competing business for a certain period of time. These types of clauses can protect important organizational knowledge and ensure smoother transitions.
