NYC EMPLOYMENT LAWYER
CONTRACT REVIEW OR NEGOTIATION

If you are being hired for a position that includes an employment contract, retaining an attorney to review and negotiate that contract for you is beneficial. These days, formal contracts guaranteeing employment for a specified period of time are uncommon, because of the employment-at-will rule in most states. However, they are more prevalent in job markets where there is a limited pool of qualified candidates. Executives, top sales people, marketers, and specialists in technical fields typically still use employment agreements.

KEY POINTS YOUR EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT LAWYER WILL REVIEW

In any employment contract, there are several critical key points your lawyer will want to review, including:

  • Pre-determined length of employment
  • Any termination provisions
  • The type of non-compete clauses and intellectual property rights specified
  • Mandatory alternative dispute resolution clauses
  • Whether alternative dispute resolution provisions replace your right to go to court
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • Compensation, benefits, and bonuses

Contracts can be complex and are often written in legalese making it difficult for you to thoroughly review these elements or understand how to best negotiate better terms. If you sign the agreement believing that your new employer will automatically do right by you, you may discover later down the line that this was wishful thinking on your part. Contracts are put into place to protect both parties, and it will serve you well to have expert legal advice on any employment contract you sign.
