Employment Contract


Asked on Oct 4, 2022

Are employment contracts confidential?

I'm considering taking a second job but would not want my first employer to know. Is there any way for them to find out? I am not sure what all of the language in the contract says and may need to get it reviewed, but I wanted to see if these contracts are kept confidential so that my employer never finds out.

Donya G.

Answered Nov 1, 2022

Typically, yes. There s generally a confidential section in your employment agreement. Is there something specific you are worried about? You can have an attorney give a consultation, review the agreement and advise you. I can do that for you. You can connect with me through the website. Thanks Donya Gordon

Physician Employment Agreement


Asked on May 23, 2023

How to value a physician employment agreement?

I am a physician looking to enter into a new employment agreement with a local hospital. I am looking to understand how to value this agreement, as it will be a long-term commitment, and I want to ensure that I am getting a fair deal. In addition, I am also concerned about the terms and conditions, and want to make sure that I am not agreeing to any terms that are not in my best interests.

Venus C.

Answered May 30, 2023

Hello. It's great that you're being proactive and want to make sure you're getting a fair deal. Long-term commitments like these require careful consideration. Here’s a few things to consider. First off, consider the compensation. Take a close look at not just your base salary but also any bonuses, incentives, and benefits they're offering. Compare these numbers to what other physicians in your area are getting to see if it's a fair deal. Regarding benefits, factor those into your evaluation. Think about things like healthcare coverage, retirement plans, malpractice insurance, vacation time, and CME allowances. Consider how these perks align with your personal needs and preferences. Also, while money matters, consider the contract length, termination provisions, any restrictions (like non-compete clauses), your expected workload, and opportunities for professional development. It's essential to fully grasp these aspects to see how they align with your goals. Overall, the objective is to think about what matters most to you and whether the contractual terms align with your interests. In the end, your employment agreement should be a win-win for both you and the hospital. Keep in mind that this response is meant to provide general guidance only and is not a substitute for personalized legal advice. Every individual matter is unique. As such, consulting with an attorney to review your employment agreement and address your specific needs is highly recommended. I wish you the best of luck as you venture into this new employment opportunity.

Employee Separation Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Jun 24, 2023

How to draft an employee separation agreement?

I am a small business owner and recently had to let go of an employee. I need to ensure that all of our interests are protected and that everything is done according to the law. I am looking for guidance in drafting an employee separation agreement that would be suitable for both parties.

N'kia N.

Answered Jun 29, 2023

Generally speaking, an employee separation agreement should address rights, responsibilities, and restrictions. As applicable, this typically includes pay and benefits (such as final pay, severance pay or garden leave pay, COBRA, 401K, and stocks); return of company property; release of claims; and restrictive covenants (such as non-competition, non-disclosure/confidentiality, and non-disparagement). The agreement may also include other agreed-upon or required terms (such as eligibility for rehire and reference to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act/Older Worker Benefit Protection Act). This is just general guidance, as what is most appropriate for an employee separation agreement varies depending on specific circumstances.

Employment Offer


Asked on Dec 8, 2023

How to compare multiple employment offers?

I recently received multiple job offers and I'm having difficulty deciding between them. I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of each offer, and would like to know what considerations should be taken into account when comparing multiple employment offers. I'm concerned about the salary, benefits, vacation time, and job responsibilities, but I'm not sure what other factors I should consider.

Merry A.

Answered Dec 12, 2023

Congratulations on receiving multiple job offers. In addition to what you listed as considerations, above, you can review things such as whether these are all for employment (rather than independent contractor); whether you would be considered "at will" or would be given a number of rights as an employee; and whether the employer would provide training/mentorship etc. If I were in your shoes, I'd compare reviews of each employer, as an employer - this can be hard to find, but has a limited number of reviews of certain employers. If at all possible, reach out to some current employees at each company and ask the same or similar questions, such as "what do you like or dislike most" about your job and the employer?

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
