Employment Legal Questions and Answers


Employment Agreement


Asked on Nov 30, 2021

Are non-competes enforceable in California?

I live in CA and work for an east coast company. I have an old employment agreement from ~2006 that has a non-compete clause. Is that enforceable in CA?

Paul S.

Answered Dec 3, 2021

No, it's not. California has a very strict law against non-competes, and views those as illegal restraints on trade. Pretty much the only scenario in which a non-compete will be enforceable in California is in connection with the sale of a business.

Employment Handbook


Asked on Aug 10, 2023

Employment handbook confidentiality?

I am an employee of a large company and I recently received a copy of the company's Employment Handbook. I am concerned about the confidentiality of the information contained in the handbook. I want to know what legal obligations I have to keep the information in the handbook confidential, and what the legal consequences are if I do not keep the information confidential.

Myrna L.

Answered Sep 24, 2023

According to the National Labor Relations Board, Employee Handbooks are not confidential. According to the NLRB, policies that treat Employees Handbooks confidential precludes employees from discussing working conditions, pay and benefits with unions or third parties; this is a violation of Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act.

Employment Offer


Asked on Sep 16, 2021

Employee or "independent contractor"

Hello, I'm starting a janitorial company. and I'm trying to keep my cost down. as of right now i will be doing all the "cleanings" if i get to over whelm i might need help for one or two gigs which would be 8 hrs or 16 hrs every two weeks if that. so i wanted to see if in California if im able to get help and have them come in as a independent contractor?

Alen A.

Answered Oct 1, 2021

Hi there, In California, workers are presumed to be employees UNLESS a company can prove ALL THREE of the following: 1) Control: Worker is free from the control and direction of the hiring entity in connection with the performance of the work, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in fact; 2) SCOPE: The worker perform work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity's business; and 3) TRADE: The worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation or business of the same nature as that involved in the work performed. AB5 does list occupations that are exempt from the test above but your occupation isn't one of them. I would need more information to give you legal advice but based on your question, you will not likely be able to have them as independent contractors.

Employment Contract


Asked on Apr 22, 2023

What's intellectual property in an employment contract?

I recently accepted a job offer that contained an employment contract. The contract states that I will not use any intellectual property of the company without prior written consent. I am unsure what exactly constitutes as intellectual property and would like to get a better understanding of the definition of intellectual property in the context of an employment contract.

Russell M.

Answered Apr 28, 2023

Your Agreement may contain a definition like this: “Intellectual Property” means recognized protectable rights and interests such as: patents (whether or not issued), copyrights, trademarks, service marks, applications for any of the foregoing, inventions, Confidential Information, trade secrets, trade dress, domain names, logos, insignia, color combinations, slogans, moral rights, right of publicity, author’s rights, contract and licensing rights, works, mask works, industrial design rights, rights of priority, know how, design flows, methodologies, devices business processes, developments, innovations. But a few of these are going to be most likely available to you. Internal company know-how or “ how we do things here that help us succeed”. Note the words “Confidential Information”. Confidential Information is another defined term which includes customer and employee information, pricing and business strategy and plans, among others.

Employment Agreement


Asked on Jul 27, 2022

In California, Is a Non-Circumvention agreement signed as an employee be enforceable if the employer lays off said employee?

As an employee I was presented and signed a Non-Disclosure & Non-Circumvention agreement. I was recently told that Friday July 29, 2022 is my last day solely because the employer can no longer afford my position. They have also presented the idea of hiring me as an independent contractor. In the proposal, my current employer reminded me of the signed agreement. I would like to know if I sign the agreement for contracted work, is the Non-Circumvention agreement still valid since the Employer Employee relationship has ceased at no fault of the employee?

Howard B.

Answered Aug 21, 2022

You will need to talk to someone in California, specifically. I am not licensed in your state. Generally, it is possible for terms of an agreement to service termination of other aspects of the agreement. This comes up in employment contracts all the time. The answer to your question most likely exists in the text of your agreement. Take that to a local attorney - aside from the text in the document, there may well be case law in California that would set an upper limit on how long such restrictions can last.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
