Does your company need written employment contracts?

Running a business in Florida comes with various responsibilities and decisions regarding your employees. One of these choices will be deciding whether you want to use employment contracts to clarify and outline the relationship you have with the people who work for you. There are many benefits to using these types of contracts, and they can provide protection for everyone involved.

Not every employer needs these types of contracts, but they could be beneficial for you. It may be in your interests to seek guidance regarding your legal options and how these types of agreements may be the best way to protect your interests. As with all types of contracts, you will want to seek a careful and thorough review of your agreements by an experienced legal professional.

What do you need in your contract?

There are many reasons why some employers choose to use employment contracts. They clearly outline how the relationship between the employee and the employer will work, which can significantly reduce the chance of complications and disputes. Like other types of contracts, you can custom-tailor your agreement to suit the needs of your business. Some of the things you may need in your contracts include:

  • Nondisclosure terms to protect your proprietary information, client lists and more
  • The responsibilities and obligations of your employees, including specific details of the individual jobs
  • Policies regarding sick days, vacation days and personal leave
  • How long the term of employment will last and procedures for termination, if necessary
  • Health insurance, disability benefits, life insurance and employer contributions to employee retirement accounts
  • Obligations the employer has to the employee and what materials will be provided by the company

These are only a few of the things that you can specifically outline in your agreement, but you can include any terms that are beneficial and practical for the unique nature of your company and your operations. 

Enforcing contracts

Even with a well-drafted standard employment contract used with all of your employees, there may still be disputes at some point. If you find that you are facing problems related to contract disputes, breach of contract and more, you will benefit from having the assistance of an attorney as you fight for a resolution to your concerns.

Employment contracts can help you protect your company interests and maintain strong relationships with the people who work for you. If you do not have these types of contracts in place already, you may consider how they could provide additional security for your business.
