Protecting the Rights of Workers
and All Employee Rights Cases
Always read and understand a contract before you sign it. Without the assistance of an experienced lawyer, the rights of employees can be put at risk.
Many legal documents are written in legalese, a language most non-lawyers have difficulty understanding. I will review legal documents for you, answer any questions you may have, and provide necessary guidance. In many cases, it may be necessary to redraft and renogiate parts of the document.
There is certain language that attorneys purposely include in employment contracts with the assumption that any potential employees will not understand the terms or even know for what to look.
Whether written or implied, employment contracts frequently provide the terms and conditions of compensation, severance pay - all of which can seriously impact the employment relationship. Employment contracts will also often contain restrictive covenants, including non-compete provisions and/or non-solicitation clauses.
Severance agreements will frequently contain a number of provisions, including the release of the employer from liability in future lawsuits and certain covenants on the employee in exchange for a separation package.
Employees in certain fields such as sales and other commission-based occupations are often subject to the terms of a contract between them and their employer. These contracts generally cover the terms of commission, how a commission payment is derived, and when the commission payment will be paid.
If you believe you need assistance understanding your rights and protections as they are presented in a contract, contact us today! I will make sure you understand all terms in every clause of your contract before you sign.
If you signed a non-compete agreement with your former employer and are now encountering problems securing a new job, let us write an opinion letter for you to show at your next interview. Many employers will refuse to hire someone who signed a non-compete agreement with their former employer for fear of being held liable in the future. The unfortunate part is that the employer's fear is completely unfounded. We have found that when employers have the reassurance from an attorney explaining the law and the reasons there is no risk, they are much more likely to hire that interviewee.
