Whether you are updating your workplace policy or you are launching your business for the first time, although Florida is an at-will employment state, it is important that you have legally-sound employment contracts for certain employees. Well drafted employment contracts serve a range of purposes including the protection of employees and employers.
Here are some of the reasons why your employment contract matters:
- Labor Certainty/Job Security
Good employment contracts include a time-frame in which employees are expected to stay with your company. This means that your employees can enjoy job security and your business can receive labor certainty for a given amount of time.
- Expected Duties
Your employment contract outlines expected duties and clears up confusion relating to your employees’ day-to-day tasks. By clearly defining expected duties, lack of fulfillment can provide ground for termination.
- Trade Secrets & Confidentiality
Your company’s confidentiality is of utmost importance. By adding trade secret and confidentiality clauses directly into your employment contracts, you can keep your business protected and ensure the confidentiality of sensitive information.
