New Employment Contract Review or Agreement –
Review & Negotiation
Contracts are everywhere in the workplace – new hire agreements, independent contractor agreements, non-compete agreements, etc. Any of these agreements can be mandatory documents in new hire paperwork. However, both employers and employees should understand the terms and conditions of any contract and ensure it complies with current legal requirements and is enforceable.
Any contracts or agreements a party signs can have a direct and drastic effect on the employment relationship.
- Does the contract or agreement have a non-compete provision? If so, are the geographic and time limitations reasonable? Is it specific as to what activities are “competitive?” Written correctly, non-compete provisions disallow a former employee from performing work for a competitor within a certain distance of the employer and for a specified period of time.
- Does the contract or agreement have a mandatory arbitration clause? If so, any disputes the parties have cannot go through the courts, but rather must be arbitrated.
These are just two examples of the many provisions that can have a significant impact on the employment relationship. Because of the incredible importance of these provisions and the language of all contracts and agreements, contact the attorneys at Walcheske & Luzi, LLC to ensure that your best interests are being represented and protected.
