Careful drafting of the most important provisions of an employment agreement – scope of duties and changes over time, performance benchmarks and incentive compensation, rights on separation – can lay the foundation for a mutually beneficial relationship and company success. But an agreement that does not address employer and employee expectations, anticipate almost certain changes over time, or address points of potential conflict can be a seedbed of litigation and liability for the employer. This program will provide a practical guide to drafting the most highly negotiated components of employment agreements, drafting in flexibility for changes over time, anticipating points of potential conflict and limiting employer liability. Part 1 of 2.
