Here's what I thought I needed:
- employee contracts
- employee action forms (as proof to court just in case)
- inventory forms (to have records on which employee is responsible for what)
I also would like to focus more on employee forms, my business is in web development so it's based on outsourcing, online clients and e-commerce. The risks here is that employees can steal my clients easily so I plan to setup an agreement that they cannot contact *any of my clients or prospecting clients for 6 months after they leave my business.
I would like to put up some *optional* benefits as well, a rewards system to keep them going - but I would tell them that this is optional for me since I can't give them out all the time due to budget/financial constraints.
What do you think of my ideas? I'm sure I'm missing out on a few basic rules that's why I'm asking here...
Do you think it's a good idea to hire a lawyer to draft it for me or will that be overkill? the last one tried to charge me 30k for the employee forms and manuals.. is that too much/less ?
