- Negotiating and defining the terms of the contract
- Including a provision that the employment is “at will” if it’s not for a specific time
- Defining specific grounds for termination
- Defining compensation and severance pay (including bonuses)
- Including a nondisclosure and noncompete clause

- Defining what happens when an employee leaves the company (e.g., will the employee forfeit stock options or be forced to sell ownership interest in a buyout agreement?)
- Including a provision for arbitration
- Defining a list of job duties that can be included in an updated employee handbook
