Benefits & Incentive Compensation


Employment agreements must be clear and detailed to avoid running afoul of state or U.S. (federal) law. Unclear employment agreements may lead to employment litigation. Larger employers may face public relations consequences from employment practice claims. At IBL, we review and draft employment agreements (as well as independent contractor agreements) to ensure all of your bases are covered so that you and your employees understand where each party’s responsibilities lie.
