Dallas Lawyer Stresses Importance of Employee Agreements
In order to avoid disputes at work, it’s best to have proper employment agreements, procedures and policies in place.
Dallas, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 11, 2010 – - Those who have been in business for a fair length of time appreciate the old saying that if something is worth doing, it should be done right to avoid problems later. There is no truer saying in business than this one. It’s typically the best approach to any products and services provided, but also perfect for the staff and management who will have procedures and policies in place to support them. Any time proper procedures and policies are in place, chances are there are far fewer employment disputes.
“Running a business by the seat of your pants isn’t the best way to be successful, so it’s prudent to have relevant employment agreements, procedures and policies in place to act as guidelines. There also needs to be processes in place to follow when managing others. You may very well be the company expert of your products or services, but chances are you aren’t an expert on employment law, etc. For that kind of expertise, you need to consult with a seasoned Dallas business lawyer,” said Ty Gomez, a Dallas employment lawyer and Dallas business lawyer.
It is vital for any business to keep current on what is happening with employment law in the state and to that end, consulting with a lawyer with experience in this area only makes good sense – good financial sense – because if things are not done properly, legally and correctly, employment disputes may cost the company a lot of money.
You can find employment agreements online, but they are generally generic and may not take into account the contract law in the state where your business conducts business. Generally speaking, they may not fit your situation, which may mean legal problems later,” Gomez said. There are a number of other things that need to be in an agreement, and missing any one of them may lead to problems that could have been avoided.
