Learn more about Employee Agreement

Establishing a productive, successful and professional workplace is essential when hiring a new employee. Because as much as a new hire must strive to impress you, it is just as important for your company to leave a good first impression on the newest member of your staff. This will lay the foundation for a healthy working relationship built on mutual understanding.

One of the first steps in this process is creating an employment agreement. Historically, only executives and professionals received employment agreements and it was fairly unusual for lower managers or workers to negotiate and sign such contracts. However, employment agreements have more recently been used for all new hires at a company.

There are many advantages to having a well-crafted employment agreement. For starters, entering into contracts with all of your employees may offer long-term protection to both parties. By providing written employment terms - including details of compensation, position, and at-will status - your company is creating a legal document that, when signed, can prove valuable if disputes occur. Additionally, a written agreement that lists employment terms, will limit later confusion and disagreement about those provisions.

LegalZoom offers an Employee Agreement containing all of the essentials, including a standard form that can easily be revised and used again for future employees. Download this agreement today to begin promoting a positive work environment that produces a satisfied workforce.
