HowToStructureEmploymentAgreements_2017More than 40% of American workers plan to look for a new job in 2017! According to the International Business Times, “2017 may be a great year for workers, as the number of unemployed people per job opening has dropped to a near-decade low… That should give job applicants more opportunity and leverage in the search and hiring process.”[1] That’s disturbing news for those business owners who hope to retain their valued employees; and 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 Series, where partners Brian Burt and Josh Woodard 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
  • What goes into negotiating and drafting an employment agreement
    • Title and duties
    • Compensation
    • Bonuses and incentives
    • Term and termination
    • Severance
    • Restrictive covenants – confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation
