Employment Legal Questions and Answers

Contract Termination Agreement

Florida

Asked on Nov 1, 2021

Review of severance agreement and decision to contest

I am 70 y/o and was laid-off after 3 1/2 years of my employment as a Medical Affairs Senior Liaiason at Lundbeck LLC as part of a company reoganization last week. The company has offered a severance package supposedly based on a Company "Severance Plan" they will make available on request. In the severance agreement, they have listed all of the employees were were considered for elimination with respective ages and which were retained vs eliminated - at least one other person in my age range was eliminated while one was retained - looks like they have covered their bases on issue of age discrimination. Just wondering based on my age and ability to gain comparable re-employment at this point in my life if there is a case for increase in compenstion irrespective of their standard "severance plan" that is in place.

Diane D.

Answered Nov 12, 2021

You don't have to sign or accept the severance package. However, if you don't, they may not give you the severance package. If you need help with the review, let me know. Remember, if you file suit, you have the burden of proving your case by a preponderance of the evidence.

Employment Handbook

Florida

Asked on Jul 16, 2023

Employment handbook harassment policy?

I am a manager at a company that recently updated its employee handbook. I noticed that the new handbook does not include a policy for harassment, and I am concerned about how to handle such issues in my work environment. I am looking for an attorney to provide advice on the best way to implement a harassment policy and ensure that the policy is compliant with all applicable laws.

Diane D.

Answered Jul 25, 2023

You need to find an attorney that does employment law and HR law. If you want, you can contact me, and I can help. I am very familiar with harassment policies and the applicable laws, and have participated in creating handbooks for employees.

Employment Offer

Florida

Asked on Dec 5, 2023

Are employment offer letters standardized?

I recently received an employment offer from a company and I'm wondering if the language in the offer letter is standard or if I should be wary of any particular clauses. I'm eager to accept the offer, but I want to make sure that I'm not agreeing to anything that could later be detrimental to me.

Gill D.

Answered Jan 2, 2024

Offer letters generally have similar language in that they offer you a specific job at a specific price point. However, these letters are not always standardized and you should read the letter carefully to understand what is being offered.

Employment Handbook

Florida

Asked on Aug 11, 2021

Do salary employees pay for time off if office is closed?

My daughter is currently working for a Chiropractic Office in Jacksonville. She is still within her 90 days, she was hired as a salaried employee, if she works extra the pay is the same. However, due to an upcoming holiday, she was discussing her time off with another employee and how they would have several days off to equate to a long weekend. She was told that while they are closed that Friday if she wants to get paid she will have to use her accrued PTO or her pay will be deducted and she was told not to discuss pay, hours, or any such thing with her fellow employees to go straight to HR. From HR she was then told that they do not offer sick days so they must use their PTO for sick days and that it cannot be used for days off which does not make any sense to what was said before. So for days they are not open she is going to be getting money deducted even though it is beyond her control. She is 23, working her first real job and maybe I am wrong but something does not seem right. Is there anything wrong or am I just being a worried mother.

Forest H.

Answered Aug 23, 2021

There is a lot going on here. A couple of high points: 1) It is against federal labor law to prohibit employees from discussing their salary. 2) Salaried employees can be required to use PTO but their pay cannot be reduced to cover holidays if they don't have any PTO available. 3) 90 days is irrelevant, many employers will have a "probationary" period but that does not affect what laws apply to the employee.

Physician Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Jul 7, 2023

Are physician employment agreements required?

I am a physician who is considering a new job opportunity. I have been presented with an employment agreement, but I am unsure if I am legally obligated to sign it. I am looking for guidance on the legality of physician employment agreements and whether or not I am required to sign one.

Daniel D.

Answered Jul 18, 2023

Physician employment agreements are not required by Law but that does not mean they are not required by the Employer. Employers have these agreements in place to set the terms of the employment regarding salary, length of employment and any other relevant terms that they want the employee to agree to. But, that also means you as the employee could negotiate provisions into the agreement that you want if the employer is willing to put them in. You legally don't have to sign one, but your future employer can still require a signed agreement. Before you sign anything you should make sure you understand the terms and provisions of the agreement.

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.
