Employment contracts, much like a negotiation, take many forms and require give and take between the employer and employee. In this situation, it is wise to have a knowledgeable lawyer look over any documents before you sign.
Our firm has experience guiding clients through an array of contracts and agreements to ensure that their rights are protected and that they are getting the best terms possible. With many companies downsizing, right-sizing or laying off employees, we encourage you to have an attorney review your severance agreement before signing.
Stephanie Jane Hahn, an experienced Indianapolis employment contract attorney, has helped individuals with a wide range of contracts and agreements:
- Noncompete agreements exist to ensure that employees do not leave a company and begin working for a competing company within a specified amount of time.
- Nondisclosure agreements are used to protect sensitive or proprietary materials that an employee might come in contact with.
- Severance agreements are drafted when a company is downsizing its workforce and typically describe a final payout.
- Employment contracts in general can take many forms and describe benefits, compensation structure, bonus plans or many other facets of employment.
Documents of this nature can often be written too broadly. They might be unenforceable and written in confusing language. Typically, a business will construct these documents to be beneficial to the company itself; it is up to the employee to fight for his or her rights.
When your rights are on the line, don’t try to tackle these difficult issues on your own. The sooner you involve an employment attorney, the better. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with our firm.
