Employees are the most important asset of any business because they interact directly with customers and have access to confidential company information. The last thing you want is a costly dispute with those very same employees that interact with your customers on a daily basis.
The best way to mitigate the risk of an employment dispute is to be protective and implement proper employment policies. In fact, a properly drafted employee handbook might resolve problems before they begin. However, poorly drafted employment policies can inadvertently place liability on an employer and cause disputes with employees. For example, a badly worded employee handbook could unintentionally change an at-will employment relationship into a term employment relationship and give rise to a potential claim for wrongful termination.
Employers should also have policies and agreements in place that protect confidential company assets once the employment relationship is terminated. Many employers believe that non-compete agreements are not enforceable. If done correctly, however, a non-compete agreement is enforceable in Texas. However, if improperly drafted, a non-compete agreement may not be worth the paper that it is written on.
