Employment Agreements

Employment agreements are usually meant to protect confidential or proprietary information and client relationships after an employee leaves their employer. When an employee signs an agreement, he or she is bound to the terms of that contract and may face litigation if any of those terms are violated. Therefore, it is important to have an attorney review the contract to ensure it is both appropriate and enforceable before it is ever signed. If you have questions about an employment agreement, contact Marshall Socarras Grant, P.L. to speak with a business attorney in Boca Raton. We represent both employers and employees and can help you draft, review, modify, enforce or defend employment agreements including non-compete, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements.

 

Employees

If your employer has asked you to sign an employment agreement, it is in your best interest to have an attorney review the agreement first. An attorney can assess whether the contract is reasonable and appropriate, and can also help you negotiate the terms of the contract to protect your best interest. An attorney can also answer any questions you have about the terms of the contract to ensure you understand and agree to the contract before signing. In the event you are accused of violating the terms of your contract, an attorney can also defend you against your employer’s claims.

 

Employers

Before issuing an employment agreement to employees, an attorney can help you carefully draft the contract to ensure that it is enforceable should you have to take action against an employee later on. In the even an employee violates his or her contract, we can help you take action against them to help prevent damage to you and your company.
