Employment Legal Questions and Answers

Severance Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Jun 2, 2023

What is a severance agreement?

I recently accepted a job offer from a new company, but before I start my new position the company has asked me to sign a severance agreement. I'm not familiar with this type of document and am unsure of what it entails. I'm looking to learn more about severance agreements so that I can make an informed decision.

N'kia N.

Answered Jun 6, 2023

There are two main types of Severance Agreements. One is signed at the beginning of an employment relationship and the other is signed at the end. When a Severance Agreement is signed at the beginning of an employment relationship, "severance" is what the employer promises to pay (above and beyond the employee's regular wages) when employment terminates i.e. when the parties "sever" ties. The sum of severance pay is typically calculated by how long the employee had been employed by the company at the time of separation. Before signing this type of Severance Agreement, a prospective employee should be sure that it clearly defines all the important terms and conditions. For example, the Severance Agreement may address how long the employee must be employed to become eligible for severance pay, how long after termination the severance pay will be paid, whether severance pay will be paid in a lump sum, and what could cause the employee to forfeit severance pay.

Physician Employment Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on May 22, 2023

When to use a physician employment agreement?

I am a physician who has been approached by a practice to join their team. I am interested in learning more about the details of the agreement that I will be signing, including when a physician employment agreement should be used. I want to make sure that I am making the best decision for my career and that I am fully informed when signing the agreement.

N'kia N.

Answered May 23, 2023

In North Carolina, written employment agreements between medical groups and the physicians that they employ are standard. A reputable group will almost always present a proposed agreement to a prospective employee without being prompted. Sometimes, the proposed agreement is in the form of an "offer letter" that, once signed, will become the contract between the parties. Before signing any proposed agreement, a prospective employee should ensure that it accurately reflects what the parties have agreed to. It should include all of the agreed-upon terms and should be written clearly enough that an outside third party could interpret what the parties intended without seeking further explanation. Additionally, a prospective employee should pay close attention to contract clauses intended to have long-term effects, including but not limited to "restrictive covenants" such as non-disclosure, non-competition, or exclusivity provisions. Last, a prospective employee might consider having an attorney review a proposed employment agreement before signing. Good luck!

Employee Separation Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Jun 29, 2023

Employee separation agreement and consulting arrangements?

I am an employer who is looking to separate from an employee. I am interested in exploring the possibility of providing a consulting arrangement as part of the separation agreement. I am interested in understanding the legal implications of such an arrangement, as well as any potential liabilities or obligations that may arise from such an agreement.

Shelia H.

Answered Jul 11, 2023

While it may seem convenient to offer a consulting arrangement as part of the separation agreement, it is usually better to have the separation agreement completely detached from the consulting agreement. The separation agreement should focus on issues pertaining to the former employment, including pay, confidentiality of trade secrets, return of employer property, etc. The new consulting agreement should look forward, establishing the expectations between the party. If the separation and consulting agreements are in one agreement, there is an increased likelihood of confusion between the old job and the new job.

Employee Separation Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on May 31, 2023

Employee separation agreement and notice periods?

I am an employee who is currently in the process of resigning from my current position. I have been offered a separation agreement from my current employer which outlines the terms of my departure. I am looking for clarity on the notice period that must be included in the agreement, as well as any other requirements that must be fulfilled in order to ensure a smooth and compliant transition.

Shelia H.

Answered Jul 11, 2023

North Carolina is an at-will state, meaning that either party can terminate the work relationship at any time, as long as that termination is not done illegally...for instance, as the result of employment discrimination. If you have a contract with an employer, then you are bound by the terms of the contract. For instance, if the contract states that you must provide 30 days notice prior to termination, then if you don't provide the notice, you could be in breach of the contract. In regards to what must be in the agreement, the employer can't provide false or misleading information. If the employee is over 40, then the employer must provide at least 21 days for the employee to review the agreement under the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act.

Employment Contract

North Carolina

Asked on Apr 18, 2023

What's position hierarchy in an employment contract?

I am a potential employee considering a job offer from a company. I have received a copy of the employment contract, but I am confused about the position hierarchy outlined in it. Specifically, I am unsure of the differences between the various job titles and the roles and responsibilities associated with each one. I would like to know more about the position hierarchy in the contract to better understand the job I am considering.

N'kia N.

Answered Jun 2, 2023

Position hierarchy may vary, as it is typically based on such factors as industry standards, company size, and internal policies. Before accepting an employment offer, a prospective employee should have a clear understanding of where the proposed position stands in the prospective employer's position hierarchy, as well as how the hierarchy affects the duties and responsibilities for that position. If the position hierarchy in a proposed employment contract or an employment offer letter is confusing, the prospective employee should seek clarification from the proposed employer.
