Drafting Employment Agreements for Commission-based Employees

$89.00

Every organization depends on generating sales, often sales made by sales agents.  Drafting agreements for sales people is complex and unlike other employment agreements. The primary task is defining a workable sales commission and incentive structure that is durable while the sales agent works for your client and that limits legal liability and practical damage after the sales agent separates from employment.  There are also complex issues of post-employment payments, internal reporting and support, and preserving the confidentiality of proprietary employer information such as client/customer lists, pricing schedules, vendor information and more after the sales agent has departed – perhaps to a competitor. This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting sales agents’ agreements for business clients.   Commission and incentive structures – and common traps after an agent departs Differences between employee v. independent contractor sales staff Common traps employers make in including unlawful terms Wage and hour issues in commission and incentive compensation agreements Protecting client and price lists, vendor information & other sensitive information when a sales agent leaves Scope of protectable interests and practical steps required to enforce confidentiality   Speaker: Jennifer S. Baldocchi is a partner in the Los Angeles office of Paul Hastings, LLP, and co-chair of the firm’s employment department. She has a broad-based employment practice, with a focus on intellectual property, including employee mobility, trade secrets, covenants not to compete, unfair competition, and related business tort claims. Her practice also involves advising and defending employers in complex employment claims such as wrongful discharge, discrimination, retaliation, and harassment. She also counsels clients in wage and hour issues and investigations.  Ms. Baldocchi earned her B.A., with honors, from the University of California, Berkeley, and her J.D. from Loyola Law School.

The Law of Background Checks: What Clients May/May Not ‘Check'

$89.00

Background checks are an exercise in risk management in hiring. Employers want to align an applicant’s skills with a job profile, reducing the likelihood the hire will not work out or, worse yet, cause the employer liability. This typically means that the employer wants as much information as possible on job candidates. But background checks themselves are fraught with potential liability. There are many categories of questions that employers may not ask applicants; and if they do ask these questions, they open themselves to liability.This program will provide you with a real-world guide to what is allowed and what isnot allowed in background checks, and best practices for using that information and avoiding liability.   Framework of laws impacting background checks, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act What an employ may/may not ask – criminal arrest history, marital status, age, credit history, and other bases Social media background checks Liability for improper/discriminatory use of background checks Counseling clients about best practices in conducting/using background checks   Speaker: Felicia Davis is an attorney in the Los Angeles office of Paul Hastings, LLP where she represents employers in all aspects of labor and employment law, including discrimination, retaliation, harassment, religious accommodation and wage and hour issues, in both single-plaintiff and class-action matters.

LIVE REPLAY: Ownership of Ideas Created on the Job

$89.00

Ownership of “ideas” – tangible inventions, “know-how” or processes, or other tangible or intangible property – is often an area of substantial dispute between the creator/inventor and his or her employer.  Though it seems axiomatic the creator owns invention, if the invention – often very valuable property – is created on the job or using employer resources, the employer has a substantial claim to ownership. Indeed, the employee may have been hired for the purpose of creating intellectual property essential to the employer’s success.  Putting in place policies and procedures to ensure employers have clear title to this type of property is essential to avoid protracted, costly, and potentially ruinous litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to ownership of intellectual property created on the job.    Ownership of ideas, information, know-how and other property created on the job by employees Impact of scope of an employee’s duties on ownership of property created on the job Role of adequate compensation in protecting employer property How some property created on the job is an employee’s – not the employer’s – even if in scope of duties Essential agreements, policies, and practices to preserve employer property What to do if asserts ownership to property created on the job   Speakers: Elen Wetzel is partner in the Seattle office of Dorsey & Whitney, LLP, where her practice focuses on patent preparation and prosecution, opinions, and counseling of clients across a variety of industries including energy, manufacturing, transportation, electronics, and e-commerce.
