Protecting Your Rights in the Workplace

Employment Contracts

Employment Contract and Severance Package Negotiation Lawyers in New York

It is common to be asked by an employer to sign a contract either at the beginning or at the end of your employment. It is in your best interest to understand your rights before signing, as this can be instrumental in avoiding potential problems in the future. Having an attorney read the contract before proceeding is advisable, as their expertise can help determine whether the contract is helpful or harmful. However, it may be the case that you have already signed the contract and are now regretting it. There are still options that we can discuss.

If you’ve been asked to sign a contract, or have already done so, contact us and we will help. Our expertise with contract negotiation ensures that any document you are asked to sign will be fair and reasonable.

Our attorneys have experience with all types of employment contracts, including:

  • Employment contracts
  • Non-solicitation agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Non-compete agreements

We Can Help You Navigate Non-Compete Agreements

If you signed a non-compete agreement, you may be fearful that this could severely limit future opportunities in your occupational field. Thankfully, New York State law is harsh on non-compete agreements that prevent one from working, so we will negotiate to eliminate harmful provisions on any agreement you have or are expected to sign.
