Handling A Broad Range Of Employment Contract Issues
Most often, businesses consider negotiating a written contract when they’re hiring top management, sales executives who work on a commission basis, independent contractors or individuals for new positions not addressed in the employee handbook. Talk to an attorney at Kaplan & Cruz, PLLC, about reviewing your contract before you sign away rights and opportunities you may later need.
Severance And Separation Agreements
When an employee loses his or her job, they are often offered severance packages and asked to sign separation agreements. If this happens to you, you are not required to sign the separation agreements or accept the severance package first presented to you. Having an experienced attorney review and perhaps renegotiate these documents may help you gain an enhanced severance package. In the long run, we may help protect your ability to earn a viable living after you lose your job, especially if you go to work for a competitor or decide to start your own business. We provide quick turnaround, with a thorough review, so you can start receiving your benefits right away, without giving up rights you may later regret signing away.
