Experienced Employment Contract Drafting and Review

Employment contracts are legal documents that detail the binding terms between an employee and an employer. They include the rights and obligations of both parties. The provisions included in an employment agreement are for the protection and security of the employer and the employee. Once an employment agreement is signed, both parties must abide by its terms and conditions. Before an agreement is signed, the employee has the option of negotiating with the prospective employer.

Employment agreements are complex. If you are a business owner in need of drafting or revising an employment contract, our employment law attorneys can craft a document that anticipates future issues to protect and avoid workplace problems. If you are a prospective employee required to sign an employment agreement as a condition of hire, we can review the contract to ensure that you do not agree to unfavorable terms. In a workplace dispute that leads to litigation, we are seasoned litigators for employers and employees in a full range of labor matters.

 Employment contracts vary widely from industry to industry. However, there are basic topics that are common for most types of employment. Some of these include:

  • Job title and scope of responsibility
  • Start date
  • Compensation and bonuses
  • Benefit package
  • Grounds and terms of termination
  • Severance packages
  • Performance standards
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Dispute resolution
  • Length of employment
  • Stock options
  • Relocation expenses

Contract Violations

A breach of contract occurs when the employee or the employer fails to perform their duties under the contract terms. When a violation occurs, the non-breaching party may be entitled to damages in a court of law. If dispute resolution is included in the contract, it is necessary to follow the procedure outlined in the agreement.

Examples of Common Remedies are:

  • Modifying an employment contract to reflect a change in circumstances
  • Reinstating an employee to their former position
  • An employer recovering losses it has suffered from an employee
  • Awarding payment for work that was negotiated but not granted
