Contracts dictate the terms of virtually every action, policy, and decision that occurs at any place of business, with significant impacts on employers and employees alike. Regardless of whether a business entity is large or small, brand new or firmly established, structured as a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), contracts inevitably impact employee compensation, termination, vacation time, sick leave, severance pay, intellectual property, competition with other businesses, litigation, arbitration, and countless other critical matters.
Regardless of your position at the company you work for, your level of skill, or the length of time you have worked at the company, it is of the utmost importance that an experienced contract review attorney assesses every clause and provision before you sign an agreement or accept an offer. The subtlest, least noticeable insertion or omission of a word can have far-reaching consequences for the employee – and not always with the anticipated or desired outcome. Hiring a knowledgeable employment law attorney to review each contract and agreement you are offered can help to ensure that you are never surprised by burdensome, unforeseen consequences. Your attorney can review each contract word by word and line by line, scrutinizing the tiniest details, to make sure that your rights will not be compromised, nor will your opportunities be restricted.
If your employer has requested that you agree to a contract of any kind, be sure to review its provisions with an experienced attorney before you accept its terms.
