Are you looking for enforceable employment agreements in San Diego which protect your company against employee litigation and competition down the road? The Watkins Firm has served the San Diego business community for decades. In recent years there has been a rapidly rising number of employee related litigation against San Diego employers. What steps can you take from the outset of the employment relationship to eliminate exposure to risk and prevent employees from taking what they learn from you to ultimately compete against you?
Ultimately, enforceable employment agreements in San Diego work hand-in-hand with other crucial documents such as the employee handbook, policies and procedures, non-disclosure and trade secret protections. Most employers understand California courts generally take a limited view of non-compete agreements. However, it is possible to structure a non-disclosure and trade secret agreement with employees which is absolutely enforceable under California law.
Employment contracts should also establish protections against employee abuse of overtime, FMLA, and other common sources of litigation. The Watkins Firm works with our clients to structure contracts which clearly establish the boundaries of employment and every aspect of hiring, evaluation, discipline and ultimately termination. We build protections and help to train senior leaders and managers to ensure consistent application company-wide.
