Employment Legal Questions and Answers

Employment

Employment Offer

Washington

Asked on Dec 5, 2023

Is confidentiality needed for an employment offer?

I recently received an employment offer from a company I am interested in working for. However, the offer did not include any kind of confidentiality agreement. I am concerned that the offer may not be legally binding, or that the company may not honor its terms. I am hoping to get guidance from a lawyer on whether or not confidentiality should be included in an employment offer.

Merry A.

Answered Dec 8, 2023

I would be happy to help review your offer, but, no, there are no legal requirements in employment or contract law that an employer or you must keep the terms of an offer confidential, or that the contract include any requirement that you keep anything at the company confidential. So, in theory at least, if I offered you a job at $100K/year, I could publish a full-page newspaper ad with all the terms of the contract I offered to you spelled out in the ad. (Now, you may be able to argue an invasion of privacy, but, as to the example I gave you, standing alone, I don't think you would win).

Noncompete Agreement

Washington

Asked on Jul 25, 2023

Noncompete agreement and public policy?

I recently accepted a job offer with a new employer who asked me to sign a noncompete agreement. I am concerned that the agreement may not be in line with public policy and wanted to get a professional opinion from a lawyer to make sure I am not putting myself in a difficult situation.

Merry A.

Answered Aug 8, 2023

If you are in Washington State, where I'm licensed, as opposed to D.C., please let me know what kind of help you are looking for - have you already signed the agreement? I've been a WA State attorney for nearly 38 years, and specialize in employment law.

Erdal T.

Answered Nov 11, 2022

I would have to see the employment agreement/contract. Also, if you have a job description with duties, responsibilities, in-office/hybrid/WFH requirements, reporting requirements, etc that would help.

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.

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.

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.
