Employment Contracts in Glendale
Employment contracts and agreements are legal documents which lay out the responsibilities of both parties. Generally established at the start of employment, these documents detail the relationship between the employer and you, the employee. If you are being hired under an employment contract, it is crucial you understand each of the components before you sign. Although each contract is unique, an employee agreement may include information on the following:
- Conditions of employment
- Length of employment
- Compensation, bonuses, and incentives
- Job duties
- Benefits package
- Equity arrangements
- Non-compete clauses
- Rights to intellectual property
- Confidentiality agreements
- Stock options
- Provisions for termination
- Severance agreements
- Vacations & sick days
Issues that often show up in employment contracts involve nondisclosure agreements and non-compete clauses. These clauses place restrictions on where you can work after leaving your current company, and what you can discuss during and after the employment relationship. While California prevents companies from placing this type of restraint on an employee’s ability to accept work in the same geographic location or industry, many companies still attempt to include non-compete agreements in their employment contracts.
Taking Action After a Contract Breach
Although some employment contracts are successful, there are other situations in which an employer breaches an agreement in an effort to take advantage of an employee. If your contract is breached, you need to contact a Glendale employment law attorney immediately. They can advise you on what to do in this situation, which might be to bring a breach of contract claim against your employer to recover damages.
If your job includes an employment contract, we advise you to seek legal advice. Contracts can be long and not easily understandable. A Glendale employment law attorney can review your contract, negotiate with the employer on your behalf, and help you understand the legal requirements.
If you believe that your employer breached the terms of your employment agreement, you may have a claim for damages against that employer. Contact Boyamian Law today so we can help you evaluate your claim, gather evidence, identify witnesses, and present a strong case.
