Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Baltimore Employment Attorneys

Our experienced Baltimore employment attorneys & lawyers can help guide you on how to proceed with various employee decisions such as reviewing employee documents such as contracts, agreements, policies, and handbooks, along with difficult decisions such as firing, lawsuits, claims, and complaints.

Although not every single employment contract will require legal assistance, many employment lawyers would recommend avoiding unilateral employment contracts that strongly benefit one side over the other. These types of employee contracts rarely hold up in court, yet having the funds needed to combat an issue in court can limit the employee’s options.

A confidentiality agreement and a non-compete agreement are common forms of employee contracts that one of our Baltimore employment attorneys can help customize for your business. If your business needs to fire an employee, proper measures should be taken from a business legal standpoint to ensure proper communication and a smooth transition of dismissing that employee. In any case, we suggest you connect with our employment attorneys to discuss your options.

    What Is At-Will Employment?

    At-will employment means an employer can contractually terminate an employee for no reason. It may also be referred to as being fired without cause or termination for any reason. An employer can dismiss an at-will employee for any reason, without showing just cause, and without notice or warning.

    It is the company's choice whether or not to adopt an at-will employment policy. The concept is so prevalent in the U.S. workplace that courts presume companies use at-will employment practices.

    What is an Employee Handbook

    An employee handbook is a collection of a company's policies and rules of conduct.

    A typical employee handbook focuses on policies to follow and lists out what employees cannot do. The employee handbook helps to protect the legal rights and responsibilities of the business, the business owner, and the employee. The employee's rights are sometimes left out of the employee handbook.

    An employee handbook can also be used to give a new employee a great first impression of the company. The employee handbook can communicate the company culture and positive benefits as well as policies.

    The employee handbook makes sure that each employee understand the expectations of the company. This understanding allows each person to work together as a cohesive team.

    The employee handbook can help prevent miscommunication with the team. Typically, a new employee is required to read the manual in the first few weeks after bei

This route can run anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the complexity and amount of time the application takes.
