How much do you know about employment contracts? Do you know when - and when not - to use them? Do you know what they should - and should not - contain?

In this episode, we talk about the ins and outs of employment contracts with Janette Level Frisch. We discuss some common misconceptions about employment contracts, situations when employment contracts are a good idea, and how to use employment contracts to define ownership of intellectual property and to protect confidentiality. We also talk about the basics of non-compete agreements and the questions employers should ask when considering a non-compete. We conclude with a discussion about arbitration clauses, whether they really streamline the process, save employers time and money, and what to consider when thinking about building an arbitration clause in to your employment contracts.
