We counsel and advocate on behalf of employees at every stage of the employment process. A particularly important time to consult with us is before signing an employment contract or non-competition agreement with a new employer. Of course, starting a new job is always a positive and exciting experience which is precisely why you want an independent review of your agreements. Often times, we uncover areas of misunderstanding or vagueness in these documents that, once fixed, can prevent problems down the line.
However, other situations we become involve in are less than positive. It can be a difficult environment in the workplace as more employees are asked to remain productive and efficient with less resources. Sometimes in stressful environments oversight and compliance with employment laws falls to the wayside. When employers are not paying attention to their policies, some employees can find themselves harmed by the wrongful acts of certain co-workers and/or managers. That is when we get involved to help employees navigate the situation and develop a course of action to achieve their goals.
