Employment Contracts

What Does an Employment Contract Cover?Employment contracts differ based on the needs and goals of the parties involved. Some of the typical areas employment contracts might address are:

● Salary
● Bonuses
● Commissions
● Other compensation issues
● Health insurance
● Life insurance
● Disability insurance
● Expense reimbursement
● Car or travel allowance
● Duration of the employment               relationship
● Termination
● Severance issues
● Non-compete requirements
● Performance expectations
● Performance review process

Whether you are an employer or an employee, it is important that your work arrangement is mutually beneficial and that it fulfills objectives for both parties. To ensure that expectations, obligations, and rights are clearly stated, along with other relevant terms, employment contracts may be executed. As with any contract, it is wise to have a qualified attorney prepare or review the document before you sign it. Lawyers who specialize in employment agreements can provide you with informed advice.

New York employment contract attorneys at The Law Offices of Newman & Drukman are experienced in the laws that govern employment relationships. Our employment contracts lawyers know how to draft or amend an agreement so that it affords maximum protection for your rights, whether you are an employer extending an offer or an employee who’s been asked to sign a contract.

New York is what is called an employment “at will” state. That means that employers can terminate workers for any reason they wish or for no reason (aside from discrimination on the basis of age, gender, race and the other classes protected by law). The other exception to termination at will is the existence of an employment contract that specifies the conditions under which your employment can be terminated.

At The Law Offices of Newman & Drukman, our experienced New York employment contract lawyers have the knowledge needed to draft employment contracts, thoroughly review contracts written by another party, and amend contracts to adapt to changes in your situation. Our employment contracts attorneys understand the importance of the language used in employment agreements and can ensure that any contract you intend to use is phrased accurately and that it specifies all terms essential to the employment relationship.

Non-compete clauses or other language that is designed to limit an employee’s ability to work for a competitor or to work for or solicit clients of an organization are portions of employment contracts that typically get a lot of attention. As an employer, you may have concerns about protecting proprietary information or work processes. As an employee, you will want to protect your options in the event the employment relationship doesn’t work out. In either case, our New York employment contracts attorneys can offer you reliable guidance and can draft or amend an employment agreement so that it meets your specifications and will be enforceable. If a dispute arises and the terms of an employment contract must be enforced, our seasoned employment lawyers can represent you, ensuring that you have a strong, dedicated advocate who will take decisive action to protect your rights and represent your best interests.
