Oceanside Non-Compete Agreements / Employment Contracts Lawyers
Employee contracts are an essential element of hiring a new employee. Contracts set out your expectations for your employee’s behavior and clarify important information such as work hours, pay, and benefits. These documents are not only important for conflict resolution, but they also play a significant legal role in your company. Oftentimes, signing an employment contract is a simple matter when hiring a new employee, but complex problems may arise at the time of signing or throughout your employee’s time at your company.

Common Contract Disagreements
In most states, including California, employment is considered “at will,” meaning that the employer has the right to fire an employee at any time. Another important element of many employment contracts is a non-compete agreement, which states that the employee will not provide trade secrets to competitors, even after the job. These types of agreements have become particularly common and are agreed upon when both parties sign a contract. Although these employment contracts and agreements are often seemingly straightforward many legal disputes may arise, including:
- Breach of contract, which calls into question whether an employer terminated an employee with “good cause”
- Breach of non-compete agreement, which indicates a former employee provided company secrets to a competitor
These types of breaches may put the well-being of your company at risk, as well as take up a significant amount of your time, money, and energy. It is important to understand the appropriate steps to take whenever you are facing a contract dispute.
