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 will always appreciate your professional approach.

I believe that you were very professional. More important, you were patient with respect to my lack of experience in this situation. You took time to explain why one path was better than another. You listened carefully and offered sound advice and counsel.

I know without a doubt you definitely know the laws and you are a great lawyer

After we went to mediation on my case, I know without a doubt you definitely know the laws and you are a great lawyer!

You went above and beyond expectations.

Our business is very complex with the different manufacturers we deal with and the rebate programs associated with them, and we feel the time, effort and your timeliness in understanding the different aspects of our case helped us with a reasonable resolution.

You have become a valuable resource and trusted advisor.

You obviously took some time to understand my situation. You engaged me in meaningful conversation from the legal standpoint and presented my options, in a way that I could understand and therefore make an informed decision.

I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process.

I’m happy to put this case behind me once and for all. I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process. Thank you, Tad! I’m happily employed now and am enjoying a fresh start.

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.

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.

We are pleased!

We are pleased with the job that you have done for us, especially with respect to your thoroughness and professionalism! You both presented yourselves in a genuine and professional manner, and this is precisely why we retained you.

Jason was an aggressive and thorough attorney.

He spent the time listening to me as a client and he would explain what steps were next as we went through the process. Jason made me feel very confident in my case and in him as an attorney.
