Detroit Employment Incentive Lawyers

Employers use commissions and incentives to attract and retain top talent. It’s critical that those incentives be properly structured.

Employers in today’s job market fiercely compete for qualified executives, offering lucrative and sophisticated incentives to persuade them to join their companies and drive performance goals. Whether you’re an employer or an employee, a Sommers Schwartz lawyer can help you plan, implement, and if necessary, litigate employment compensation provisions.

Different Types of Employment Incentives

Employee perks and augmented compensation may include stock options, signing bonuses, and other ongoing performance awards. Additionally, many employees, especially in the Metropolitan Detroit automotive industry, are paid in whole or in part by way of commissions.

Sommers Schwartz’s experienced and knowledgeable employment attorneys often counsel clients in connection with understanding and negotiating employment agreements that include just these sorts of incentives. We can help you achieve your goals by favorably structuring these types of agreements as well as avoiding later disputes arising from a failure to pay earned stock options, performance grants, commissions and other incentive compensation.

Contact a Sommers Schwartz attorney today to confidentially discuss your case and learn how we can help.

I appreciate the team effort provided.

I would like you gentlemen to know that for those of us that have been violated and need legal assistance, we must often wait for justice in quiet desperation. As such, the words I used above “confidence and comfort” came only from you and your team.

I was very impressed with you throughout the trial.

That was the first time I had been a juror, and it was an interesting experience. I was very impressed with you throughout the trial, and got the feeling that you really enjoy your career.

Mr. Thompson gave me excellent advice.

Mr. Thompson consulted with me about a specific legal issue and gave me excellent advice as always. He also represented my son after he was hit by a car and also did an excellent job.

Your ability, understanding, and compassion are truly remarkable.

Your ability, understanding, compassion and at time dispassionate way of speaking for those who no longer can speak for themselves are truly remarkable.

Should my son become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.

My oldest son just passed the Colorado Bar. I firmly believe that should my son Chris become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.
