Your Employees Should Be an Asset—Not a Liability.
When it comes to operating your Miami-Area business, your employees should be your greatest asset. They are the heart and soul of your company, and you will not achieve your business goals without a talented and reliable workforce.
However, it is not always easy to find the perfect employee, and positive work relationships have the potential to sour over time. Employment issues have the potential to be costly and even ruinous for your business, and while it is impossible to completely avoid lawsuits, it is vital that you take steps to mitigate your risk.
Whether you are currently facing federal or state employment lawsuits, or you want to be proactive and put agreements in place to protect your company from employment issues, The Campbell Law Group has the knowledge and experience to ensure that your employees are indeed an asset rather than a liability through mitigating potential risk and taking a proactive approach.
Some of the tools our firm recommends to mitigate your risk of employment concerns and issues include, but are not limited to:
- Employment Agreements;
- Entrance and Exit Interviews and Agreements;
- Comprehensive Employment Policies and Procedures;
- Noncompete and/or Non-solicitation Agreements;
- Independent Contractor Agreements;
- Executive Officer Employment Agreements;
- Shareholder and Member Employment Agreements
- Review of your Employee’s Duties and Job Descriptions for Compliance
Employment agreements as a shareholder and/or member of a company are needed.
Additionally, Employment agreements can serve to protect your personal ownership rights to be employed and receive a salary from the company you created as an owner and protect against shareholder or member cohorts to oust you out of employment as an owner and limit the benefits you can receive from your own Company. Unfortunately, a promise and a handshake are simply not enough to protect your company or your personal employment interests, nor is a previously established status quo in any kind of shareholder or member dispute.
From the hiring process, to employment, to termination if necessary, The Campbell Law Group will help you develop legal strategies to suit your company’s needs and mitigate your risk of employment lawsuits and their inherent costs. Give us a call today to learn more.
