Find the Right Employment Contract Attorneys

If you've been hired by an employer, chances are that the terms of your employment arrangement will be spelled out in an employment contract. The contract can help both employers and employees avoid confusion over the terms of employment. Employment contracts usually address the most important, basic aspects of the work arrangement.

For example, most employment contracts will cover: the employee's job title, duties, and essential responsibilities; salaries and compensation; health and medical packages; vacation awards; retirement provisions; and evaluation standards. The contract may also go into very specific details, depending on the nature of the work environment.

Finding the Right Employment Contract Attorney

Perhaps the most important part of any employment contract is how and when the employee may be terminated. The majority of employment arrangements are at-will, meaning that the employee can terminate the worker at any time, for any reason (so long as the reason is legal). Whether a work arrangement is at-will or not is usually stated in the contract. The contract may sometimes name a specific date when the employment will end, especially for temporary or seasonal jobs. Read more

Some employment contracts contain special instructions for either the employer or the employee. These are commonly known as clauses, which serve to limit what the employee or employer can't do in relation to the company. For example, confidentiality clauses may require an employee to keep certain information private, such as trade secrets or company recipes. Or, a termination clause may require the employer to take certain steps when terminating an employee.

Both employers and employees can benefit from using an employment contract. The contract helps to clarify each party's interests and desires. If you will be introducing a new employment contract, an employment lawyer can help you draft and negotiate the contract terms. Your attorney can help you with contract negotiations before you sign any employment terms.

Violations of an employment contract can involve a mix of employment laws and contract laws. If you have a dispute or legal issue over an existing contract, an employment attorney can help you file a claim if necessary. Most employment contract disputes are handled through state or federal employment agencies. In order to process your claim, agency authorities may require you to submit important documents and receipts, including pay stubs and written accounts of any work-related disputes.

Your attorney can help you compile your claim with such an employment agency. They can also help you file a private lawsuit if it becomes necessary.
