Employment Contracts And Non-Compete Agreements

Most Americans who work for an employer are considered at-will employees. An at-will employee can be fired or quit their job at any time, for any reason.

The terms and conditions of employment for certain employees, such as executives, are often memorialized in an employment contract.

I have experience representing individuals whose employers have breached their employment contracts and employees who are accused by their employers of having breached their employment contracts.

At-will employees in some industries are required to sign “offer letters” or other documents that state the employee’s compensation and benefits. Offer letters may contain non-compete or non-solicitation agreements, which can limit an individual’s ability to change jobs, start a new business, or work in the same industry in the future.

To better understand how the contents of an offer letter or non-compete agreement can effect your long-term employment goals, it is important to consult with an experienced employment attorney.
