Employment Contract Review
Though employment contracts may seem straightforward, there are several things that can undermine the legality of the contract. Valiant Law can help you evaluate the legality and enforceability of your employment contract and work to improve any issues that might exist. We can also assist you in the event of a breach of contract, in which an employer did not hold up their end of your employment agreement.
An employment contract will be invalid if:
- An employee’s rights to be free from indentured servitude are restricted, and
- An employee is prohibited from participating in political activities, union membership, or other associations.
Generally speaking, even non-compete agreements are not enforceable under New York law because they would limit the employee’s ability to enter into future employment.
Types of Employment Agreements
Some of the most common types of employment agreements include:
- Employment contracts
- Severance agreements
- Noncompete and non-solicitation agreements
While contracts can vary from industry to industry as well as from one position to another, they tend to address issues such as:
- Benefits such as health coverage, paid time off (PTO), stock options, retirement funds, and more
- Grounds for termination of the employment contract
- How the employer will measure job performance
- Job responsibilities and performance standards
- Length of employment and any options for job renewal
- Noncompete agreements
- Nondisclosure agreements
- Severance pay
- Type and amount of compensation you are owed, including salary, commissions, and bonuses
Never sign a severance agreement or any other binding employment contract before consulting with an experienced employment law attorney in your area.
