Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Sacramento Employment Attorneys

Our experienced Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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.

Incentive Stock Options

What are Incentive Stock Options?

Incentive stock options (ISOs) are a type of stock option typically given to key employees or management to purchase stock in the company and can result in a better tax treatment.

Incentive Stock Options vs. Nonqualified Stock Options

Other options that may be available to employees who are not considered key employees or upper management may be eligible for nonqualified stock options or NSOs.

Unlike NSOs, an ISO would be treated favorably for tax purposes. When an ISO is exercised, the employee need not claim the income. When they sell the stock, the gains are taxed as ordinary income rates rather than at capital gains rates. It is important to be aware that the tax benefits are lost if the employee who is entitled to ISOs sells the stock immediately; if they sell immediately they are treated the same way as an NSO.

Hiring Employees: Easy 10-Step Guide for Your First Employees

  • 6 min read

If you've come to the point where your business needs employees to get things done, there are a few steps you have to take. You'll obviously want to do things like create an employee handbook, make your own employee personnel files, and create safety measures to protect your workers. These basic tasks, however, do not correctly represent the long process of hiring an employee. In fact, there are many legal issues you'll have to deal with to make sure you’re compliant with state and federal regulations.

Non-Compete Clause: What Is It?

A non-compete clause prohibits any employee from using the skills and knowledge used or gained at your workplace for a set period of time after their employment, either by working for a competitor, or by recruiting business from current clients. It is written into an employee's contract when they sign on with your company or when they leave your company.

Many employers add non-compete clauses to employee contracts. These clauses protect businesses, but are controversial. Also, they may not be enforceable in all places.

Non-compete clauses are traditional at jobs where workers are highly skilled or do very specialized work. However, more and more businesses include non-compete clauses in contracts, even if employees' tasks are not technical

Stock Warrants

What is a Stock Warrant?

A stock warrant gives holders the option to buy company stock at a fixed price, the exercise price, until the expiration date and receive newly issued stock from the company. A stock warrant is similar to its better-known cousin, the stock option. For starters, recall that a stock option is a contract between two parties and gives the stockholder the right to buy or sell stocks at a certain price and on a certain date.

Similarly, a stock warrant holder also has the right, to buy a specific number of shares of stock that will be created in the future, upon exercising the warrant, called “underlying” stock. That transaction is called “exercising” the option, and it must take place before a specific date and at a predetermined price. Warrants are not compensatory tools, but rather used simply to increase a company’s capital and sweeten the deal for potential investors. The underly
