Often, an employee does not discover the impact of an employment contract until after an employer accuses the employee of a contractual violation. At the Indiana law firm of Robert J. Hunt, we are employment law attorneys who fight hard to protect the rights of employees in contract disputes. We can help you by providing representation in breach of contract actions. We have litigated a wide variety of employment contract matters, including non-compete, non-solicitation and trade-secret agreements.
Severance agreements are another type of employment contract that may contain provisions that limit a departing employee’s right to work for a competitor or contact former customers, clients and even co-workers. The attorneys at The Law Office of Robert J. Hunt, LLC regularly review severance agreements and assist employees with negotiating more favorable terms.
The Importance of Being Proactive
Starting a new job can be an exciting opportunity for career growth. It is also a time when many employees are asked to enter into employment contracts that may have a significant impact on their careers, including contracts that limit your ability to work for a competing company or in the same field of employment. The best time to consider the terms of an employment contract is before you sign it. If you have questions about the terms you are agreeing to, contact The Law Office of Robert J. Hunt, LLC, to review your contract with an employment lawyer.
Employers who offer severance agreements almost always do so because they are seeking something of value from a departing employee. Whether it is a full legal release to prevent you from filing a lawsuit, or a last minute attempt to bind you to a non-competition agreement, employers often insert unfavorable terms in severance agreements. Before you sign a severance agreement, consider having an experienced employment attorney review what will become a contractual agreement between you and your former employer. The Indianapolis lawyers at The Law Office of Robert J. Hunt, LLC have many years of experience and can help you understand the implications and risks of signing a severance agreement.
Our clients include a wide range of employees affected by employment contracts, including doctors, members of upper management, computer programmers and salespersons.
