Header_HowtoStructureEmploymentAgreementsDid you know that 83 percent of North American workers plan to look for a new job in 2014? According to leading workforce solution company, Right Management, “These numbers should signal a wake-up call for top management… Employers must act now to engage top talent and prevent them from leaving for the competition.”[1]

This is disturbing news for those business owners who hope to retain their valued employees. For those employers planning to leverage the anticipated exodus to upgrade their own personnel roster, success may turn on their willingness to make longer-term commitments to their new recruits.

Whether you are working to retain existing employees or attempting to attract new ones, a well-drafted employment agreement remains one of the best motivational tools.

Snell & Wilmer invites you to the next program in the Emerging Business Seminar SeriesSM, where partners Brian J. Burt and Manuel H. Cairo will discuss how to prepare an employment agreement.

Topics for this complimentary seminar will include:

  • Understanding the difference between at-will employment and employment agreements
  • Negotiating and drafting an employment agreement
    • Title and duties
    • Compensation
    • Bonuses and incentives
    • Term and termination
    • Severance
    • Restrictive covenants – confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation
