Work for Hire Agreements
When an individual is hired by an employer as an independent contractor, it is vital to the employee to seek the counsel of an experienced employment lawyer in Philadelphia to draw up or negotiate a work for hire agreement. There are many complex provisions within a work for hire agreement that need to be clearly defined. Compensation and the method by which it will be dispensed, assignment of intellectual property and interests, and legal rights to the future use of the work being done need to be specifically outlined.
