Compensation, vacation time, commissions, harassment, restrictive covenants such as noncompete clauses… every employee faces a worrisome landscape at work.

Workplace Counseling And Negotiation Of Employee Agreements

Negotiating with an employer can be challenging. You want a good relationship with your employer while also receiving the compensation and benefits you deserve.
We help our clients with employment contract negotiations involving:

  • Employment contracts: For executive and sales positions, and roles requiring unique education or skills, negotiation is critical. We can assist you in negotiations involving salary, bonus and commission structure, and restrictive covenants such as noncompetition and non-solicitation agreements.
  • Consulting agreements: If you are an independent contractor, we can help you navigate the details of short- or long-term consulting contracts. Issues can include compensation, indemnification, and other related matters.
  • Separation agreements: If it’s time to exit from your position, we can assist with negotions over severance pay, restrictive covenants and a host of other issues.

Litigation of Contract Claims

If you’ve recently left your employer,  you may find yourself challenged over post-employment obligations such as noncompete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements. And issues such as payment of outstanding wages, salary, commissions, bonus, benefits, or severance may arise.

These disputes often turn on the interpretation of employment agreements and separation agreements, and the enforceability of restrictive covenants. If you find yourself facing litigation, the Law Office of Peter G. Goodman, PLLC is well equipped represent you.
