At Risman & Risman, P.C., our experienced team of employment attorneys is dedicated to representing employees in New Jersey and protecting their rights in the workplace. One essential service we offer is employment agreement reviews. Our comprehensive reviews of employment agreements help employees understand their rights, obligations, and potential risks before signing legally binding documents.

Understanding the Importance of Employment Agreement Reviews

Signing an employment agreement is a significant step in an employment relationship. These agreements outline the terms and conditions of employment, including compensation, benefits, job responsibilities, and more. While employment agreements are designed to protect employers and employees, they often favor employers, leaving employees disadvantaged.

An employment agreement review is crucial to ensure that your rights are protected, that you are being treated fairly, and that you are aware of any potential pitfalls that may arise during your employment. By seeking legal counsel and having an experienced employment attorney review your employment agreement, you can be confident in making informed decisions and negotiating for better terms when necessary.

Our Approach to Employment Agreement Reviews

At Risman & Risman, P.C., we take a personalized and detail-oriented approach to employment agreement reviews. Our skilled attorneys thoroughly examine the terms and conditions of your agreement, paying close attention to the following key areas:

  1. Compensation and Benefits: We carefully analyze the provisions related to your salary, bonuses, commissions, stock options, retirement plans, health insurance, and other benefits to ensure they comply with applicable employment laws in New Jersey.
  2. Job Responsibilities and Duties: We scrutinize the provisions related to your job description, reporting structure, and any additional responsibilities outlined in the agreement. This helps ensure that your job description accurately reflects your role and that you are not unfairly burdened with excessive or unrelated duties.
  3. Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Clauses: We assess any restrictive covenants, such as non-compete and non-solicitation clauses, to determine their enforceability and potential impact on your future employment prospects. We guide negotiating and modifying these clauses to protect your interests.
  4. Termination and Severance: We thoroughly examine the provisions related to termination, severance pay, and the circumstances under which either party can end the employment relationship. This includes assessing non-disparagement or confidentiality clauses that may restrict your ability to seek employment or discuss your experience with the company.
