Corporate + Transactional

Employment Agreements + Incentives

Fluet understands that employees and contractors make up vital parts of the “corporate engine.” Recruiting, retaining, and growing talent (while still protecting business interests) is essential for creating and growing a successful business. Fluet attorneys assist in the drafting, revision, and review of all manners of employment agreements, ranging from simple offer letters to complex employment contracts. Protecting confidential information and intellectual property are essential and our team tracks key employment developments to provide the best guidance and counsel in this evolving area. Members of our Corporate + Transactional Practice also draft reasonable and enforceable non-competition, non-solicitation, and other restrictive covenants.

Similarly, employee incentives are critical to consistently hiring and retaining high quality, talented employees. Fluet lawyers are experienced in advising on and establishing stock option plans, restricted stock agreements, phantom stock and stock appreciation rights plans, and other forms of equity-based and non-equity incentive plans.

We support clients in a variety of employment-related matters through:

  • Drafting and negotiating employment agreements and independent contractor agreements.
  • Drafting and negotiating non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, non-disclosure and proprietary information agreements.
  • Preparing and reviewing employee handbooks, parental leave policies, equal opportunity policies, drug-free workplace policies, confidentiality policies, and other employment policy documents.
  • Drafting employee stock option plans, phantom and virtual stock plans, profits interest plans, restricted stock unit plans, and the grants made under such plans.
