Business Contracts Legal Questions and Answers

Business Contracts

Employment Agreement


Asked on Oct 28, 2022

Can a company keep an independent contractor's equipment and supplies after mutually severing ties?

I'm an independent contractor and have mutually severed ties with the owner of the company I contracted with. She said I could retrieve my belongings this past Tuesday at 2pm. Before I could do so she asked for more time to gather my items and have them ready for pick up in the front lobby. I asked why I couldn't just come get the stuff I could be done w/in an hour and she replied she had some accounting to do. Yesterday Thursday I said I wanted to come get my stuff Friday as I've given her plenty of time. She said I could pick up today at 3:15 as long as I pay her $180 that she claims I owe. First I've heard of this charge and completely dispute it. Now she is saying she is keeping my stuff in lieu of payment. I spoke with county sheriff's office who will provide an escort to retrieve my things. It's work related and her keeping the items is preventing me from working. Does she have any right to withhold my property? Just to be clear I'm not an employee.

This depends on what was agreed to by the parties in the contract. If the contract is silent, did the parties have an understanding as to what would happen? It would be beneficial to have your agreement reviewed by an attorney and advise you on next steps. I can assist you with that review and advise. You can connect with me through the website.

Non-Disclosure And Confidentiality Agreement


Asked on Sep 21, 2023

Business contract confidentiality clause?

I am a business owner in the process of signing a contract with a new vendor. We have agreed on the terms of the contract, but I am concerned about the confidentiality clause. I need to ensure that the vendor is not able to share the details of the contract with other businesses or individuals that could potentially be in competition with us. I want to know what can be done to ensure that the confidentiality clause of the contract is enforced.

A business might use a non-disclosure agreement (sometimes called an "NDA," a "Confidential Disclosure Agreement," or a "CDA") to prevent others from disclosing its confidential information. Confidential information includes the business' trade secrets, as well as other proprietary information that does not constitute trade secrets. Generally, there are two main types of non-disclosure agreements. In a unilateral non-disclosure agreement, one party agrees not to disclose the other party's confidential information. In a mutual non-disclosure agreement, both parties agree not to disclose each other's confidential information. It is usually best to execute a non-disclosure agreement prior to the disclosure of confidential information. Disclosed information cannot be un-disclosed. Also, a party that has already received confidential information without restrictions might have little to no incentive to sign a non-disclosure agreement after the fact. For advice on or assistance with a non-disclosure agreement, speak with a knowledgeable business contract attorney. Good luck!

Answered Nov 14, 2023

A contract is an agreement between parties on how they are going to conduct business with each other. What is written in the contract is crucial to being able to determine what the agreement of the parties truly is. Contracts are all about the words on the page and what they say exactly. A well-drafted contract will make the responsibilities of both parties very clear. A notice provision in a contract typically will say how much time a party has to give notice to the other party before the contract is terminated. This is different than what a term provision will say. For example, sometimes contracts will have language that says a contract cannot be terminated before the expiration of a certain time period. In that case, if one party terminates the agreement, full payment of the contract is still required to be made even if the service is not rendered. Other times, the term set forth in the agreement (e.g. 15 months) serves as a guarantee of price and other terms in the agreement. For example, "Contractor agrees to perform cleaning services to the Buyer for 15 months, at $XXX per month. At the end of the term, this contract will auto renew and will continue month to month until terminated by either party." Proration is a term that is used to describe when a partial payment can be made. If the contract does not allow for proration and instead gives a monthly payment, then the full monthly payment would be due. Contracts are all about what is written specifically in the contract. If terms are missing there can be interpretation of what the parties actually meant.

Business Contracts

Settlement Agreement


Asked on Sep 10, 2021

When does a non-disparagement clause end?

8.2 Continuing Obligations of Contractor. The provisions of Sections 1.3, 1.4, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7.2, and 8 shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason. 9. Additional Provisions. 9.1 Non-Disparagement. Both Parties agree that they shall not, directly or indirectly, engage in any conduct or make any statement, whether in commercial or noncommercial speech, disparaging or criticizing in any way of the other Party, or any of its affiliates or clients or any of their respective owners, officers, employees or agents or services offered by any of them, nor shall either Party engage in any other conduct or make any other statement whether in writing, verbally or on-line, that could be reasonably expected to impair the goodwill or reputation of the other Party or any of its affiliates or clients. 9.2 Non-Solicitation. During the term of this Agreement, and for a period of twelve (12) months following termination of this Agreement, Contractor shall not, without the prior written consent of Company, directly or indirectly solicit for employment, employ or otherwise engage the services of employees or individual consultants of the Company. This subsection shall not apply to general solicitations, public job postings, or newspaper advertisements for employment opportunities.


Answered Sep 28, 2021

Since Section 9, Non-Disparagement, is not listed as one of the sections that "survives termination of this Agreement" it is arguable that once the Agreement terminates pursuant to the termination clause of the Agreement then the Non-Disparagement restriction will terminate as well. If no term is stated in a written agreement then presumably the restriction on disparaging that the parties agree to is not terminated, since the contract did not specify one, and therefore is a continuing obligation of both parties. Damages is another issue though. If the contract does not specify damages if one party breaches the agreement by disparaging the other, then what are the damages? Courts hate to guess at damages so the non-breaching party would have to prove "actual damages". If the non-breaching party cannot prove a loss of business or a lost contract with a client as a "direct result" of the disparaging comment, then the court will not guess at damages so the most the non-breaching party may hope to gain is an injunction against future disparaging comments and an order that such comments be removed from the internet, if that is where the comments appear.
