Employment Law Governance And Counsel

Sometimes when an employment law case arises, an employer or employee may believe he or she has a case, only to realize later that the paperwork involved in his or her potential dispute is contradictory. The law can be complex and complicated, and often these cases can be avoided if counsel is sought early on in the employment process.

As an employee, it is important to review your severance agreement, employment contract and manual stipulations with an attorney before signing the paperwork. Similarly, employers should have their manuals, severance agreements, terminations, non-compete agreements, and other procedures and policies reviewed by an attorney. Going through this review process ensures that the agreement falls within the law and no one's rights are being denied.
