Employment Policies, Forms, and Contracts for your Business

Every business with employees must maintain certain posters, contracts, notices, and forms for purposes of complying with the array of federal and state laws and regulations and minimizing employment liability. We make sure that your business is in compliance and that your employment documents are strategically written, to protect your business.

Contracts

Whether an employer is hiring a new employee, a new executive, or needs confidentiality and a nonsolicitation agreement to protect its client lists and trade secrets, Forework can help.

Forework provides attorney-reviewed and designed employment contracts, to help business owners stay ahead of the curve and minimize their exposure to legal issues down the line. As an example, Forework provides the following contracts:

  • Commissioned salesperson contracts
  • Bonus agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements
  • Nonsolicitation agreements
  • Outside salesperson employment agreement
  • Arbitration agreements with a class action waiver

Policies

Employers often need assistance with updating their policies and procedures, preparing an employee handbook, or updating existing policies that need to be updated due to legal changes. With constant federal, state, and city/local changes, there’s always something happening in the world of employment law that requires the employer to modify its policies and procedures. That’s where Forework comes in! We provide clients with a starter employee handbook and any individual policies they might need later on.

Forework’s standard employee handbook template is $800 and can be purchased by emailing hello@forework.com and requesting a handbook. Then, one of Forework’s employment experts will contact you to request more information, such as the location of your workforce, the industry in which the employer operates, the location of the business, and the size of the workforce. Depending on this information, Forework will customize an employee handbook and email it back.

To purchase individual policies, employers can do so also, for $150/policy. Here are some of the policies that Forework provides:

  • Family and Medical Leave Policy
  • State-specific paid family leave policies (such as those for NY, CA)
  • Paid Sick Leave Law Policies
  • Vacation Time Policy
  • Wage Parity Policy
  • Clock-in and Clock-out Policy
  • Recordkeeping Policy

All of our policies are attorney-reviewed and approved, to ensure that your policy is compliant with the law. And, to the extent there is some legal ambiguity about a policy or legal requirements, we will let you know that as well.

Posters and Notices

Forework provides new employers with a complete package of employment posters and notices that must be displayed in their workplace, along with an annual update to any poster that may be required by federal or state law. For example, many states require employers to display the minimum wage notice and, when the minimum wage changes, Forework will alert employers to this fact and provide an updated new minimum wage poster, to ensure the employer is always in compliance!
