Noncompete Agreement

New York

Asked on Jun 4, 2023

Noncompete agreement and industry restrictions?

I recently signed a Noncompete Agreement with my current employer. I am looking to explore other opportunities in my industry and want to know what restrictions my noncompete agreement might have on me. I am interested in understanding the limitations of the agreement and if there are any potential implications of taking a job in the same industry.

Danielle G.

Answered Jul 11, 2023

In order to ascertain the limitations and implications, you would need to review the specific language of the agreement. If the non-compete is very broad, it's possible it would not be enforceable. In New York, for a non-compete agreement to be enforceable, it must be for a reasonable period of time and limited geographic scope. It also must protect the employer's legitimate interest. For example, the restrictions must protect confidential information or specialized skills you gained while on the job, or some other legitimate interest. If the agreement goes beyond those limitations, a court could find the non-complete to be unreasonable and unenforceable, in whole or in part. As to what restrictions your specific non-compete imposes (and the reasonableness of those restrictions), you would need to look at the specific language in the agreement. If you are unsure about the limitations, you should seek advice of counsel to help decipher the extent it would apply to your industry in general, and the likelihood it would be enforceable in court.

Employment Handbook

Washington

Asked on Aug 10, 2023

Employment handbook employee rights?

I am an employee of a company and I recently received a copy of the Employment Handbook that outlines the rights and responsibilities of the employees. After reading through the handbook, I am concerned that some of the policies may not be in compliance with the law. I want to make sure that my rights as an employee are being respected and that I am fully aware of any legal obligations that I may have.

Merry A.

Answered Aug 18, 2023

Hello - I have been an attorney for nearly 38 years and specialize in employment law. It would be helpful to know what policies concern you, but be aware that federal and state law, and usually county and city as well, override any policies that are incorrect. Meanwhile, keep in mind that if you are an "at will" employee you have few, if any rights (other than certain ones protected by law); that sometimes employers don't keep up with updating their polices; and that HR is not your friend. If you feel your rights are not being respected, you may want to book a 30 or 60 minute consultation with a WA State Employment attorney. If you feel you have been or are being discriminated against because of a protected class status, you can also file discrimination complaints with the WA State Human Rights Commission and/or the EEOC. If you are not getting the wages you should be receiving, you can file a wage complaint with the state; you will be protected from retaliation for doing so. If you feel your working conditions are unsafe, you can file a complaint with the WA State equivalent of OSHA, and/or with OSHA (federal). Best wishes, Merry

S Corp

Connecticut

Asked on May 23, 2023

S corp and employee benefits?

I am the owner of a small business that recently decided to incorporate as an S Corp. I am trying to understand the implications of this decision in terms of employee benefits, as I want to ensure that my employees are being provided with the best possible benefits. I am looking for advice on the best way to structure these benefits within the S Corp framework.

Thomas L.

Answered Jun 30, 2023

Employees of Sub-S corporations are employees under the IRC. So the question of employee benefits is not specific to Sub-S corporations. You should consider a PEO.

Employee Separation Agreement

New York

Asked on Jul 18, 2023

Employee separation agreement and outplacement services?

I recently resigned from my job and my employer has presented me with an Employee Separation Agreement. I understand that I am entitled to outplacement services, but I am unclear if this is something that is included in the agreement or if I need to negotiate for it. I am concerned about my future career prospects and would like to ensure I receive the services I am entitled to.

Gregory F.

Answered Aug 1, 2023

Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Nov 3, 2021

Breach of contract?

I’m a nurse practitioner currently employees under a contract in which I was suppose to receive a bonus paid out 30 days after a 12 month period. One week after the 30 days has passed, the Bonus has not been paid. This is consider breach of contract, correct? the contract stipulates I must give 30 days notice prior to quitting. Does this still apply if he is in breach?

Diane D.

Answered Nov 12, 2021

Have you asked about receiving the promised bonus? It may just be late. I would talk to the employer before quitting. And, yes, you must still give the 30 days' notice or you will be in breach. Also, realize, if you quit you may not be entitled to the bonus. I would have to see the contract you signed to actually know what you are entitled to or not.

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.

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.
