Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Los Angeles Employment Attorneys

Our experienced Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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.

Phantom Stock: What Is It?

Phantom stock is an employee benefit where selected employees receive benefits of stock ownership without the company giving them actual stock. It is worth money just like real stock, and its value rises and falls with the company's actual stock (or what the company is valued at, if it's not a publicly traded company). Employees are paid out profits at the end of a pre-determined length of time.

Also known as shadow stock, simulated stock, or phantom shares, phantom stock is provided as a bonus for hard work and longevity. One form of phantom stock is Stock Appreciation Rights.

There isn't one exact definition of what phantom stock is or how companies use it. The term can apply to any reward that takes time to mature. Usually, the award is for a specific number of units, or phantom shares, that fo

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

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.

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