Employer-Employee Contracts And Agreements

To be valid in Arizona, employment contracts and agreements must meet certain conditions. For example, a noncompete agreement must not violate public policy.

Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements must be drafted carefully, keeping in mind existing Arizona case law concerning the duration, geographical reach and the activity the agreement restricts. Failure to do so could result in a lawsuit.

For a consultation with an experienced lawyer regarding an employment contract or agreement, call us at 623-806-8994.

Protecting Your Rights And Interests

At Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, in Avondale, Arizona, we have extensive experience with all types of employer-employee contacts and agreements. Whether you are an employer or an employee or you are purchasing or selling a business, our attorneys can assist you in matters involving:

  • Noncompete agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Employment contracts
  • Management and consulting contracts
  • Severance agreements

Our firm also conducts litigation involving these types of contracts and agreements.

Services For Employers And Employees

We can draft such a contract or agreement or negotiate changes in proposed documents that better serve to protect your interests. We can also provide an opinion regarding the enforceability of an employer-employee contract or agreement.

Employees often perceive that they are at a disadvantage vis-à-vis employers or potential employers. If you are an individual or an employer entering into an employment relationship, we can draft or review an employment contract. If you are leaving an employment relationship, we can draft and negotiate a severance agreement or other contracts and agreements to protect your interests.

As an employer, you may have valuable intangible assets in the form of customer lists, trade secrets and other types of intellectual property. These assets are vulnerable to theft by employees, contractors and other parties. We can draft a nondisclosure agreement that protects your assets and provides potential remedies should those assets be stolen.

Services For People Buying Or Selling A Business

Our firm can assist you in matters involving noncompete agreements, consulting contracts with sellers or other employment law matters. We can also help you understand the drawbacks of such agreements and provide guidance and services to protect your interests.
