If you paid them for the work, then the ownership of the codebase is legally yours. You'd have copyright.

You could break up your application into modules, and mak sure that some of the writers have no knowledge of the other modules - but that creates more risk (what if all people with knowledge of module A are sick?) than it actually adds.

See, all the modules would come together in a setup-package. The person who goes to the client and installs the stuff might just as easily copy the entire product.

Most shops that I know of don't even think about their employees as potential liabilities. I'd be looking for work elsewhere right away.
