When contract disputes arise, we can represent your interests in negotiation and in court.
Establishing An Employment Relationship
When beginning a new job, the employer and employee may agree to a number of contract terms. For example, employers often ask employees to sign noncompete agreements when starting a new career, or even long after their initial hire date. Employers may also offer compensation agreements and severance packages to employees who may require a waiver of certain state and federal claims. Depending on the terms, such agreements could possibly hinder your career at a later point in time, deprive you of wages and benefits, force you to use arbitration instead of the court system to resolve disputes or extinguish your legal rights altogether.
If you are a worker with concerns about how such contracts will impact you, we will work closely with you to ensure that you understand your rights. We will discuss how an employment agreement can impact your career and help you negotiate agreements in order to achieve a favorable result on your behalf.
