Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Tucson Employment Attorneys

Our experienced Tucson 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 Tucson 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 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. When you buy a warrant, you are not locked in. You still have the right to freely decide to go forward with the purchase in the future.

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

Build Board of Directors: Simple How To Guide for Startups

  • 9 min read

To build board of directors for your startup, look for the most experienced people in the company. The board should be elected by shareholders, will determine the company's direction, and will draft the company's bylaws. Also, when it comes to who is responsible for the success and the failure of the company, the board is where all eyes fall.

What Does a Board of Directors Do?

Building the board of directors for your startup is tough, as the board of directors will help shape the future of your company. Early mistakes with the board can be devastating.

The board is responsible for things like setting high-level goals for the company, hiring the CEO, issuing stock, and clearing dividends. Keep in mind, your management team oversees all da

Contractors don’t require employee benefits and tax withholding, saving you money and time. Furthermore, contractors typically carry their own liability insurance, protecting your company from the potential legal exposure from having additional workers.

The risk in using independent contractors is that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or state taxing authorities may determine in an audit that you ar

  • 5 min read

With the rise of companies such as Uber and Lyft, the attempt to define the workplace role of the independent contractor is gaining serious traction. How can you be sure whether your next employee should be an independent contractor, and what steps can you take to ensure governmental compliance?

1. Understand What an Independent Contractor Is
