Employment Contract Lawyers

It is not uncommon for employers in certain industries to require their newly hired employees to sign contracts or employment agreements as a condition of their employment.
Such contracts often include details like how long the employee’s work contract will last and how much they will be compensated. But depending on the position, an employee agreement may also include information pertaining to bonuses, commissions, travel expenses, stock options, and other benefits.

As a result, having an employment contract lawyer review your existing employee agreements is an important factor in ensuring your organization is protected. For instance, your current contracts may permit you from terminating an employee for a specific reason or risk being sued for breach of contract if you do.

At Halpern & Scrom, our employment contract lawyers can assist your business by:

  • Negotiating and drafting employment agreements, including executive employment agreements, commission agreements, severance agreements, settlement agreements and restrictive covenants (e.g., non-competes, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements).
  • Structuring reductions-in-force (RIF), including analyzing RIF plans and candidates for reduction to minimize potential liability under plant closing and anti-discrimination statutes. Preparing plans to operationalize RIFs and how to properly communicate with departing and remaining employees.
  • Representing parties involved in mergers and acquisitions, including conducting human resources and employment law reviews of the prospective seller, and advising sellers on avoidance of post-closing liabilities.

Make sure your employee agreements protect your interests – schedule an appointment with one of our experienced employment contract attorneys today.
