Drafting and Reviewing Contracts

Contracts are necessary in a wide range of industries and for many purposes, such as:

  • Insurance – Construction is an industry that is heavily reliant on contractors and subcontractors. As such, written procedures must be in place detailing what insurance coverages are available and at what cost.
  • Hiring and Firing – In several types of businesses, staff hiring and firing can lead to lengthy legal battles if terms have not been established ahead of time.
  • Intellectual Property – In manufacturing, companies must protect their operating systems and designs with intellectual property licensing agreements.

Scope of Contracts

Paperwork with penThe scope of business contracts will vary by industry, however, there are a number of items you are likely to see often.

Non-Compete Clause

Employers protect their investments and prevent the dissemination of proprietary documents and information by asking employees to sign a non-compete clause. These contracts typically require that employees do not share sensitive information with their employer’s competitors during the contract and for some length of time after.

Termination

Employers and employees must be aware what grounds are cause for terminating a contract. Specifics will likely differ from one employer to the next. For example, some employers terminate employees on a first offense, whereas others provide warnings.

Buy and Sell Agreements

In the event that a business has more than one owner, a buy and sell agreement must be in place to state what will happen should one owner encounter a significant life event.
