Attorney Donald Moore drafts and enforces severance agreements, Many times employees are presented with severance agreements to sign at the time of their termination or lay-off. Generally, these agreements provide for payment of a specified sum in exchange for a release of any claims they employee may have arising out of their employment or termination thereof. These may include discrimination claims or other legal claims the employee may have. Employees are well advised to have an attorney review any such severance agreement to provide advice regarding the employee=s rights and obligations under such an agreement and the general fairness of the severance offered.
Covenants Not to Compete
Employers routinely require Mr. Moore to draft or to enforce a non-compete and/or non-disclosure agreement. In today's employment environment, many employees are asked to sign covenants not to compete either at the beginning of their employment or at some subsequent time during their employment. When an employee ceases employment, they are well served to seek legal advice on the enforceability of such a covenant. Employees who are notified that their previous employer is going to attempt to enforce such a covenant should also seek prompt representation to avoid legal action and possible monetary sanctions. Covenants not to compete are governed by state law and there are certain requirements for them to be legally enforceable including reasonable geographical and time limits.
Employers routinely request Mr. Moore to draft employment contracts. On the flip-side, employees who are lucky enough to be offered contracts of employment should ensure that the contract they are offered is fair and equitable. Legal review of an employment contract prior to beginning employment can save any number of problems during the employment relationship and at the termination of such relationship.
