You will need an employment attorney to advise you, as such, you will need to post your project on the website Here are the steps you need to take to accomplish this 1. Post the job you need to get accomplished – for example “ I am looking for a Florida employment attorney to advise me of my rights -------------“ 2. Once posted, attorneys on the website that are interested and qualified will respond to your posting 3. Choose an attorney/s based upon their qualifications and cover letter to have a quick call so that you can decide who you would like to hire. 4.

Stock Option Agreement

California

Asked on May 28, 2023

Stock option agreement and early exercise provisions?

I recently accepted a job offer from a company that includes stock options. I have been provided with a Stock Option Agreement, but I am unsure of the early exercise provisions and how they may affect my future rights as an employee. I am looking for guidance on the legal implications of early exercising my stock options.

Paul S.

Answered Jun 20, 2023

It's very important to follow the process for exercising the options, to the letter. These are described in the stock option agreement. I've had someone reach out in the past, asking why their never got their stock options. When I asked how he exercised them, he said he sent a message over Slack, rather than following the proper process. If you aren't sure what to do, then you should have a lawyer go through the documents with you.

Severance Agreement

California

Asked on May 31, 2023

How to draft a severance agreement?

I recently accepted a severance agreement from my employer in order to leave my job. I would like to know how to draft a severance agreement to ensure that all of my rights and entitlements are included and that the agreement is legally sound. I want to make sure that I am fully aware of the terms and conditions of the agreement before I sign it.

Gagandeep K.

Answered Jun 7, 2023

Typically, your employer drafts a severance agreement for employee's review and acceptance, and the employee may negotiate the severance agreement. A severance agreement generally contains severance pay, post-employment benefits (e.g., healthcare or 401K), release of certain claims/liability, non-compete, non-disclosure/confidentiality, return of company property, and other provisions. An employee should review the severance agreement carefully to ensure the scope of each provision and the limitations placed on the employee are valid, as this is a legal document and it may impact future employment opportunities. You may want to have an attorney review the severance agreement before signing it to make sure it complies with legal requirements and protects your rights as an employee. You can read more about severance agreements here: https://www.contractscounsel.com/t/g/us/employee-separation-agreement/11 or https://www.contractscounsel.com/t/g/us/severance-agreement/11.

Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Sep 9, 2021

I work full time from 7:58 am to 5pm they tell me by law I have to take 1 hour break . And they say I can’t pass the 40 hours because they won’t pay overtime to me . But the other employees

I just want to know if it’s correct that they can do that or I can take 45 min only of break so they pay me .

Donya G.

Answered Oct 5, 2021

From my initial research it appears that based on Federal law, s 30 min break is required; however, I am NOT a Florida attorney and DO NOT practice in this field so its best to talk to someone with the knowledge and expertise in this field. https://thelawdictionary.org/article/florida-labor-laws-about-break-during-work/ Hope that helps.

Quick, user friendly and one of the better ways I've come across to get ahold of lawyers willing to take new clients.

View Trustpilot Review

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

View Trustpilot Review

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.

View Trustpilot Review

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
