10 Documents to Consider for Your New Hires


When you find that perfect new employee and you’re ready to bring them on board, it’s important to take step back and consider your new employee process. There are several documents you’ll want your new employee to sign, some of them required, and others simply a good idea.

We’ve written a eBook detailing some of these documents in detail. Here is our top 10 list:

  • Employee Eligibility Verification (Form I-9)
  • W4 Tax Form
  • Offer Letter
  • Confidentiality Agreement
  • Terms of Employment
  • Non-Competition
  • Non-Solicitation
  • Invention Assignment
  • Safety and Training Documents
  • Information Technology Policy

Many states and industries have their own requirements. *It’s important to consult with an expert to
ensure you’re covered* — both from a legal requirements perspective, and in terms of reducing your
potential exposure to lawsuits. If you have the basics covered as listed above, it should be a fairly
quick and inexpensive process. Make sure to get everything in place before you bring in the expert.
It’s wasteful and expensive to have high-end legal talent help you with things you could easily
prepare yourself.
