Employment Contracts: What to Include and What to Avoid
|Date / Time:
When was the last time your organization reviewed and updated its employment agreements?
From commission programs to noncompetes to general employee terms of employment either through the at-will relationship or under a specific length of employment, employers must recognize and understand the enormous complexity associated with these agreements.
Employers are increasingly being pulled into costly litigation over ill-advised or poorly prepared employment agreements. This topic will allow employers to better diminish and avoid employment at will issues, along with wage/hour and compensation/benefit nightmares - while strengthening key terms valued by most employers (such as restrictive covenants, choice of law, remedies upon breach and arbitration).

- At-Will Employment
- Express Contracts and Terms

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
