Assisting Louisiana Employers With Contract Matters

When hiring an employee, it is important to define the scope of the employer-employee relationship, particularly what is expected of the employee should he or she leave his or her job. You do not want an employee to go to work for a competitor armed with knowledge of your business practices or a list of clients.

At the law firm of Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, our Baton Rouge employment contract attorneys can help you protect your company and your interests.

Experienced Help With Noncompete And Confidentiality Agreements

Noncompete and confidentiality agreements are designed to prevent employees from sharing confidential information with a competitor. Our Louisiana business law attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of issues surrounding noncompete agreements for employers, including:

  • Drafting noncompete, nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements
  • Reviewing the language in existing contracts
  • Negotiating the terms
  • Advising on whether an agreement is likely to be enforced
  • Litigating breach of noncompete agreement claims

These types of agreements are often viewed suspiciously by the courts and are a frequent source of litigation. If an employment contract is not written narrowly enough, it may not be enforceable. The legal team at Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, can help craft an agreement that will be likely to stand up to judicial scrutiny.

We are committed to representing all types of employers, from “mom and pop” closely held businesses to state government agencies. We can help ensure that your business’s information remains protected. We also defend companies when an employee claims that the terms of his or her agreement are unenforceable.
