A business thrives and grows with quality employees. For business owners, the challenge is to hire and retain quality candidates but protect proprietary information when those key employees are lured away or set off on their own.
The Law Offices of Kennedy & Jackson serves businesses in negotiation, drafting and review of employee agreements. We counsel family-owned businesses, professional associations and other closely held businesses in Greater Houston and Harris County.
EMPLOYEE CONTRACTS LAW FIRM IN HARRIS COUNTY
In addition to offering competitive terms to attract workers, you have to anticipate that those employees may leave to pursue other opportunities. If those opportunities are in direct competition with your enterprise, a noncompete clause and other restrictive covenants can protect your interests and avoid litigation.
Our attorneys can help you lock down key employees and protect your trade secrets and client base through carefully drafted agreements. We can help you address these issues in job offers or as standalone contracts with key personnel:
- Noncompete agreements
- Nonsolicitation agreements
- Nondisclosure agreements (confidentiality agreements)
- Management agreements
- Executive compensation
- Severance agreements
Restrictive covenants can be tricky. The employee may balk at signing a noncompete that is too heavy-handed, or later challenge it in court. If a noncompete is too vague, it may not be enforceable. We help employers strike the right balance so that they can protect intellectual property rights.
