Thank you for your kind words:

Being a small start-up company we find that individually crafted agreements are simply too expensive. But the requirements on all businesses, especially in the area of employment, mean that it is imperative that appropriate employment contracts, employee handbooks and associate documents are executed for the protection of both the company and the employee. We have used LawLive employment agreements extensively.
