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.

How Much Does It Cost to Patent an Idea?

If you have an idea to patent, there are two ways to approach it. You can:

  • Write your own patent application. This is the cheapest way to get your patent application done. It costs an average of $900 for most inventors to receive a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
  • Hire a patent attorney to file your application. With this option, you will hire a patent agent or attorney who will help you perform the research and fill out the patent application with the USPTO. This route can run anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the complexity and amount of time the application takes.

During a typical patent for an invention or process, much of the expense outside of advisor fees are fees imposed by the USPTO. Some of the fees associated with acquiring a patent include:

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.

Why is it Important to Understand At-Will Employment?

Most employers will spell out their employment policies in an employee manual or handbook, a contract, or a job application. While it is not a requirement, they often have new hires sign these documents to acknowledge they read and are aware of the policy. An employer can change the job, the benefits, a

Exercise Stock Options

  • 7 min read

Many employers now offer stock options in place of other popular benefits as a part of their employee incentive packages. Stock options can be confusing to new employees receiving them, and even some employers offering them. For example, some people do not realize that a employee stock option has no real value until it is exercised.

In this article, we take a look at stock options: what they are, how they are exercised, their tax implications, and more. We’ll also offer some suggestions on where to turn for financial advice regarding your stock option questions.

Keep in mind that exercising stock options can be complicated, and result in significant financial and tax consequences. It is highly recommended, therefore, that you consult with an attorney, accountant, or other experienced tax professional before exercising any stock option.

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
