Under an employment agreement for sales employee, a company hires an employee whose main task is to expand the company’s sales in a given territory or region.
The company typically pays the employee, on top of the basis salary, a sales incentive in the form of a commission.
The employee’s duties usually involve business trips (with a company’s or the employee’s private car or in public transports) and meetings at prospective clients. Because of her direct interaction with the company’s clients, the employee is trusted with and handles confidential commercial information. This in particular requires careful drafting in the agreement to ensure that the company’s interests are adequately protected, even after the end of the employment relationship.
