Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand El Paso Employment Attorneys

Our experienced El Paso 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 El Paso employment attorneys can help customize for your business.

What is a 1099 Employee?

A 1099 employee is one that doesn't fall under normal employment classification rules. Independent contractors are 1099 employees. Instead of having a permanent worker that takes direction from the company, your business would use an independent contractor who works under their own guidance.

The difference between a 1099 employee and others is usually easy to recognize. One example of an independent contractor is a painter hired to paint your home. They will not be your employee after finishing the job.

Work for hire is any created work that can be copyrighted like songs, stories, essays, sculptures, paintings, graphic designs, or computer programs. In the U.S., work for hire — shorthand for the term "a work made for hire" — applies if the created piece is part of a person's job or made by an independent contractor.

For example, when a staff writer drafts a blog for his employer, the company becomes the author and assumes the copyrights for the blog. All areas of copyright ownership now belong to the company, including credit for the blog and control of the blog. Work for hire is part of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 and changed the go-to rules of copyright ownership. Work for hire applies in two situations:

  • An employee creates work during her normal functions as an employee
