Employment contracts are a legal requirement to ensure you get the benefits and compensation you were promised by your employer when you were offered the job. However, at times you may face issues with your employer after you have signed the employment contract. In this case, it is imperative that you pursue those issues using the appropriate channels with your employer to ensure you are not mistreated, and that is where Palazzo Law Firm can help.
Since employers are not required by law to provide severance packages to their employees, they instead offer severance agreements. In most cases, the severance agreement will extend perks and medical benefits for a specified period of time on the condition that the employee waives their right to sue the employer, assuming a legal basis exists to do so. However, a number of financial and legal issues should be considered before signing this agreement, and we can provide you the consultation you need in this regard.
A restrictive covenant prevents employees from taking specific actions, such as non-compete agreements that prevent you from working in certain industries or jobs for a certain period of time and/or distance. Some restrictive covenants are broadly written. Others are unenforceable. Since this can stand in the way of future or current employment opportunities, it’s a matter of concern. You should seek legal advice before signing an employment agreement, and our experts can provide you the consultation you need.
A non-compete agreement forbids an employee from working or owning a competing business for a certain period of time or within a certain location. In fact, employees may be asked to sign this agreement at the time they are hired, as a condition for a severance agreement, or during the course of employment. These agreements, however, can deter potential employers from hiring you. Our highly skilled employment attorneys in Las Vegas can negotiate with your employer to substantially modify or waive these agreements completely.
