We Can Help You Review Your New Employer’s Proposed Employment Contract
When you take a new position, you may be asked by your employer to sign an employment contract. While many aspects of the contract are “boilerplate” terms, you may be able to negotiate key provisions to help ensure that the agreement is fair and balanced. We can help you protect your rights and ensure that you have a fair employment relationship with your new employer. When you ask for us to review the employment contract, we use our experience to help you negotiate the best possible terms. This can include pointing out potentially problematic clauses, and recommending changes when appropriate. We can also work with your employer’s attorney to ensure the new agreement is fair and balanced before you sign it.
Specifically, we can help review your employment contract to ensure it is fair in the following areas:
- Hours of Work, and scheduling constraints (how you can be scheduled, including overtime or holiday pay)
- Paid Time Off & other employee benefits policies
- Defining “For Cause” termination and “No Cause” notice provisions
- Ensuring non-competition, non-disclosure, and non-solicitation clauses are fair
- Defining how the contract renews, and how changes can be made
