Contract law, especially when it pertains to an employment contract, can be complicated – if you don’t understand all the fine points and fine print, you can find yourself in trouble.
When you sign a contract, you expect the terms and agreements of that contract to be fulfilled. But sometimes the other party doesn’t do what they promise, leaving you vulnerable. That’s when you need a lawyer at Sommers Schwartz.
Different Types of Employment Contracts
Sommers Schwartz has experienced and knowledgeable employment lawyers who have handled a wide variety of negotiations and disputes involving:
- Non-competition agreements
- Severance agreements
- New employment agreements
- Employee benefit agreements (stock options, bonuses, etc.)
- Sales commission agreements
We understand that entering into an employment contract is an important decision for both businesses and individuals, and it’s critical that those entering into such agreements completely understand the meaning of the terms and conditions to which they have agreed. When there is a contract – a written obligation between both parties – the rights and obligations of the company or the individual are usually spelled out. When one of those parties fails to honor the terms as laid out in that agreement, the contract is then said to have been breached.
