Enforcing, Drafting, and Reviewing an Employment Contract
The employment law attorneys at Maginnis Law are experienced in all areas of employment contract drafting and review. Whether you are an employee or an employer, having a properly drafted employment contract is one of the most important documents that is often overlooked. It keeps both the company and employee on the same page in regards to wages, benefits, bonuses, non-competition agreements, and non-solicitation agreements.
An Employment Contract should contain information setting forth expectations for both the employee and employer. Our attorneys have assisted managers and executives protect their interests while also ensuring the company’s success. If your employer does not adhere to the terms of the contract, an employee may be entitled to compensation for a breach of that contract. Importantly, the failure to provide commissions, bonuses, or other forms of wages may entitle the employee to liquidated damages and an award of attorneys’ fees.
Our employment contract attorneys have drafted and negotiated a variety of employee contracts for both employers and employees. We have experience with a variety of employment agreements ranging from chief executive officers, chief technology officers, and other executives, down to individual managers, supervisors, or salespersons.
Considering the average length of an employment relationship is nearly five years, it is often worth the cost of having our employment contract attorneys review and negotiate your employment contract prior to signing. This avoids any confusion or unwelcome surprises after starting a new job.
