Our panel of lawyers will share the basics; practical tips from both sides, and to answer questions from the audience.   

Examples of questions:

Employers

  • What are the most important things to watch out for when I draft my employee contracts?
  • When / how often should I review and update my employee contracts?
  • What happens when there is a dispute? How to resolve? Litigate / mediate?
  • Differences between different industries? (e.g. services, retail, startup, F&B, etc)
  • Is it important to specify who owns what IP? 

Employees

  • How can I know what is fair in my contract, and what isn't?
  • How can I clarify and push back on a contract that does not seem fair?
