Brian Hartstein Discusses Employment Contract Considerations in World at Work Article
Chicago – Quarles & Brady partner Brian Hartstein, Chicago office chair of the Labor & Employment Practice Group, provided insight about the use of employment contracts in a World at Work article about the role such contracts could play in attracting and retaining employees.
He addressed this point in an excerpt from the article:
Brian Hartstein, partner and chair of the labor and employment practice in the Chicago office at Quarles & Brady, acknowledged that employment contracts might not make sense for some organizations, depending on size and industry. However, under the right circumstances, employment agreements can contain provisions that both protect employers and increase the ability to attract and retain talent.
“Narrow restrictive covenants and protections for confidential information, paired with contractually guaranteed compensation packages or even, under the right circumstances, some protections modifying standard ‘at-will’ employment, can serve as a significant incentive for attracting employees while also benefitting employers,” Hartstein said.
