How do you draft, review, and negotiate clear contracts? Attorney Eric Sarver will be answering this question, as it relates to the most common contracts that startups, small business owners, freelancers and solo workers rely on. He will provide a basic overview of what language to look for, what terms to include, and what terms and language to avoid, in the following types of contracts:
- Restrictive Covenants / Non-Compete Agreements / Non-Solicitation Agreements;
- Non-Disclosure Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements;
- Independent Contractor Agreements (whether you are the independent contractor / freelancer, or the small business that hires independent contractors);
- Contracts for services (what clauses should you be wary of? What should you include in a contract for your company’s goods or services?) And, last but not least,
He will cover the basic criteria for proper employee classification. Who is an independent contractor? Who is an employee? What are the criteria your company must meet, for correctly classifying these two types of workers? In this workshop, he will address these issues, along with the types of contracts / agreements that your company needs to have in place, to ensure proper employee / worker classification.
