You may have spent years at a company, but when you are laid off or downsized, the company may be looking for the least expensive way to sever your relationship. In many years of handling employment contracts and severance agreements for executive employees, our California employment contract attorneys have helped clients negotiate an acceptable contract.
- Severance Agreements: Being laid off from a job you did well for many years can be difficult financially, professionally, and emotionally. It is not an easy time to make decisions about a severance agreement. Should you accept it or negotiate? Talk to a severance agreement lawyer at Reich, Adell & Cvitan. We will review the agreement and recommend what your next action should be. Protect your rights and your future.
- Employment Contracts: Have you been offered an executive position? Congratulations. Before you sign the employment agreement, though, have an experienced employment law attorney review the document. Is the compensation suitable to your experience and the level of the position? Are stock options included? How are stock options and bonuses determined? You are in a strong position to negotiate. Let us help.
- Non-Compete Clauses: Are you leaving a company? Have they warned you about the non-compete clause in your contract? Even if the company is based outside of California, non-compete clauses are illegal and thus unenforceable under California law.
