Keeping non-compete agreements ethical and fair to both parties

Non-compete agreements are a common element to employment contracts that sometimes catch a prospective employee off guard. Is it ethical, and even legal, for a contract to state that the employee is not allowed to work in a specific field after he or she has left the company? The simple answer is that yes, non-compete agreements are a normal part of many Houston companies’ operations, and it is legal to uphold the terms of these agreements as long as they have been drafted correctly. At The Jackson Law Firm, we understand how a non-compete agreement can be beneficial to your company, as well as the proper way to word such an agreement so a former employee cannot hold it against you.

Former CFO convicted of embezzling from employer

When it comes to high-ranking employees in a business, there must be some measure of trust. Many of these people have access to money and significant assets, and there is little to stop them from abusing this trust. Most Houston executives in positions of authority perform their jobs with high ethics; unfortunately, there are others who can’t resist the temptation of making some easy money in the form of embezzlement.

Appropriate times to withhold payment from a subcontractor

It's always in a company's best interests to adhere to the terms of a contract, especially when it comes to payment. Failure to pay someone for the work or service they do can result in business litigation. This can include Houston business owners who don't pay fair wages to their employees and subcontractors. It also pertains to the payment terms outlined in a contract between a business and a subcontractor company.
