Personalized Contract Drafting And Review
Employment contracts can have high stakes for both the employer and the employee. When it comes to reviewing an agreement presented to you by an employer or drafting a new agreement, the details matter. Personalized care by a knowledgeable attorney who understands the meaning and significance of each term can prove invaluable.
With decades of contract experience, our team of dedicated employment attorneys can help negotiate the terms of your employment or separation and ensure that you understand your obligations.
Sensitive Contract Issues
Most employment relationships in the U.S. are “at will,” meaning either the employer or the employee can terminate the relationship at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. However, the rights and obligations of each party may be governed by separate written agreements between the employer and employee, including:
- Separation/Severance agreements
- Arbitration Agreements
- Non-compete Agreements
- Non-solicitation Agreements
- Non-disclosure Agreements
- Confidentiality Agreements
Whether you’re an employer or an employee, we can help negotiate the terms of a new employment relationship or clarify your post-employment rights and obligations.
Speak With an Attorney Before Signing
Far too often, people feel pressured into signing legally binding employment documents before they have had a chance to consult with an attorney. But you could forfeit your rights with the stroke of a pen. Does your severance agreement preclude you from receiving unemployment benefits in the event of termination? Will you be prevented from seeking a new position in the same industry? If a dispute arises with your employer, will you be compelled to arbitrate?
