The employees of a business and its intellectual property (including accumulated knowhow) are usually its greatest asset. Careless drafting of agreements with employees infringes on the intellectual property rights of the business and may result in future disputes and sometimes even criminal exposure, both of the business and its managers. It is important to emphasize that the issue of employment of employees in general and terminating their employment in particular is a complex and important issue that requires the receipt of ongoing advice from lawyers experienced in the field to ensure that things are done correctly and legally and do not create any exposure to the employer. Our firm is well acquainted with the field and assists companies and businesses on an ongoing basis, including through the a “retainer package” - regular monthly counseling - which allows avoiding disputes that may cause unrequired expenses (both financial and human resources) in the future and distress to the employer and employee.
