Protecting Your Rights and Interests in Employment Contracts
The rights, responsibilities, and stipulations laid out in employment contracts will help ensure that the interests of both the employer and the employee are protected regardless of how the employment relationship ends. Both employers and executive employees should therefore take drafting and negotiating employment contracts seriously, with careful attention paid to critical employment contract clauses such as:
- Compensation and salary
- Bonuses and commissions
- Severance packages
- Departure arrangements
- Employment-at-will issues
- Binding arbitration clauses
- Non-competition and restrictive covenants
When drafting employment contracts, our lawyers' main goal is to fully address potentially critical issues head-on. Employment contracts should provide clear direction to minimize the possibility of future disputes. Careful and thorough work during the initial drafting of employment contracts can potentially save our clients large amounts of money in future litigation fees.
If a legal conflict over an employment contract becomes unavoidable, the employment attorneys at GREENFIELD STEIN & SENIOR, LLP, are available to represent employers or executive employees who are involved in employment contract disputes. The skills required to write an employment contract are different from the skills needed to litigate an employment contract dispute. At GREENFIELD STEIN & SENIOR, LLP, we are fortunate to be able to offer a team with skills in both arenas.
Common questions that arise in disputes over employment contracts include whether an employer has fulfilled any obligation it may have to pay severance and any unpaid bonuses, wages, commissions, or other compensation.
