When starting a new job, an employee may be asked to sign any number of contracts, from comprehensive employment contracts to non-compete agreements to confidentiality agreements. Employment-related contracts are not something to be taken lightly, as they can dramatically affect an employee’s current or future livelihood.
Many employment-related agreements are difficult to navigate without the assistance of an employment attorney who has experience in both the interpretations of such agreements and how they are likely to play out in various situations. In addition, the services of an attorney who is skilled and experienced in negotiating such contracts can often increase an employee’s compensation and benefits while minimizing the concessions the employee must make when accepting a position.
