Employment Agreement Review
If you are considering signing an employment agreement, a modification to an employment agreement, or a severance agreement, it is prudent to have it looked over by an attorney first. The employment agreement attorneys of Risman & Risman, P.C. are proficient in reviewing all employment related documents. We also offer a free phone consultation to determine whether we can provide you with the assistance you need in reviewing an agreement regarding your employment.
There are a number of important legal considerations to take into account when signing an employment agreement. For example, while employers often make oral statements about what compensation and benefits come with your job, if those terms are not included in your employment agreement, they may not be enforceable in court. Further, when signing a severance agreement you are often required to waive all known or unknown claims against your employer, meaning that if you were a victim of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, you may never be able to pursue those claims against your employer once you have signed the agreement. Furthermore, our attorneys handle severance agreements on a regular basis and are often able to negotiate on behalf of employees so that they get significantly more than initially offered. We can help you avoid the pitfalls that often ensnare unrepresented employees.
To be legally binding, employment agreements and contracts must be current with company policy and in compliance with state and federal laws. We can review any employment agreement, including, but not limited to:
- At-will statements;
- Covenants not to compete;
- Covenants not to solicit;
- Shareholder, partner and owner agreements;
- Executive compensation and benefits agreements;
- Severance and separation agreements;
- Independent contractor agreements;and
- Sales representative contracts
