Boston Severance Agreement Lawyers and Employment Contract Attorneys
As part of our employment practice, we help employees in negotiating and finalizing severance agreements and employment contracts, as well as provide advice on non-compete agreements and non-solicitation agreements.
In these situations, it is critical for employees to fully understand their legal rights. In the case of severance agreements, employees normally are asked to waive any and all claims that they may have against an employer. An employee may also be asked not to compete against the employer in a certain geographic area for a specified period of time.
We explain the severance terms and conditions to employees, and provide advice as to what conditions are normally included in severance agreements. Where severance terms are unfavorable or not acceptable, we negotiate with employers for the changes being sought by our clients.
Similarly, in the context of a new employment contract or executive-level compensation, including stock options, we explain to employees the full scope of the terms and conditions being sought by the employer. Often, there will be particular terms that are contentious, including the conditions under which the employee may be fired, the severance that might be payable, and the terms of a non-compete after the employee is no longer employed by the employer.
