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.

Overall a wonderful job and I will definitely recommend you!

I had a wonderful experience with you and Tad! I think the outcome was great, in spite of my former employer’s attempts at dodging the issue and I am extremely happy in my new position.

I will always recommend Mr. Watkins and Sommers Schwartz.

After meeting Mr. Watkins in person and working with him during the proceedings, I realized that the words in his website bio were true. He is a FIGHTER for his clients. No matter what time of day I called, he immediately returned my call. I am glad I made an EXCELLENT decision in selecting him.

You were kind enough to listen.

When it seemed that we would not be able to get anyone to listen to us regarding the details of our accident and any potential merit to a legal case, you were kind enough to listen, and subsequently bring this matter to a positive resolution.

I couldn’t have been more impressed!

Jason Thompson represented me in a gross negligence case, and I couldn’t have been more impressed with his professionalism and energy throughout the entire process.

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.

Arvin Pearlman was the first and only attorney that we consulted.

Arvin Pearlman was the first and only attorney that we consulted and could not be happier that we chose him to represent us. I truly realized that Arvin had me and my family’s best interest at heart. Once we made it to trial, all we kept thinking was how glad…

I’m speechless!

I’m speechless! I never expected to receive the settlement that you guys worked so hard for! Thank you so much!

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!

I want to express what a great job Tad did. He made me feel comfortable and important in his role and he was very supportive. I was very impressed.
