  Employee/Contractor Agreement
Contracts should be made specific to the particular circumstances of the business arrangement, as opposed to simply attempting to rely on a generic template that is not designed to advance your company's financial interests, hence the significance of a contract lawyer drafting your emploment and independent contractor agreements.
Clauses often seen in such contracts might include some variant of:
"The Employee agrees that he will at all times faithfully, industriously, and to the best of his skill,
ability, experience and talents, perform all of the duties required of his position. In carrying out
these duties and responsibilities, the Employee shall comply with all Employer policies,
procedures, rules and regulations, both written and oral, as are announced by the Employer from
time to time. It is also understood and agreed to by the Employee that his assignment, duties and
responsibilities and reporting arrangements may be changed by the Employer in its sole
discretion without causing termination of this agreement
"It is understood and agreed that the first ninety days of employment shall constitute a
probationary period during which period the Employer may, in its absolute discretion, terminate
the Employee's employment, for any reason without notice or cause
