Employment Legal Questions and Answers


Employment Contract


Asked on Apr 19, 2023

What's probationary period in an employment contract?

I am a recent college graduate who recently accepted a job offer from a company. As part of the offer, I was asked to sign an employment contract. I understand that the contract includes a probationary period, but I'm not sure what that entails. I would like to know what the probationary period is and what it means for me as an employee.

Diane D.

Answered May 10, 2023

A period of time to evaluate you and to show that you're a good fit for the job and that you are fully qualified for it. At the end of the probationary period, they will either keep you on or terminate you.

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.

Cease and Desist


Asked on Mar 14, 2022

When to send a Cease and Desist Letter?

I am a small business owner (retailer), and had a long time staff member (Michael) develop a drinking problem. He felt comfortable enough to come to work intoxicated on a few occasions putting the rest of the staff and my business at risk. He was a supporting manager and had keys to the store. One day he had to be driven home from work because he was too inebriated. Another staff member who drove him to his home gave him a couple of days to come clean to me before she would tell me what happened. He never told me even though i gave him every opportunity to do so. So I had a meeting with him and explained that I was disappointed and wanted to help him, but my business and family had to be protected as well so I took his keys and title away while keeping him employed and at the same pay rate. I did this in hopes that he would get some help and didn't have to worry about being unemployed. Then Covid hit. Had to shut down for a little while. I kept in communication with my team (including Michael) throughout. Everyone responded except Michael. When it was time to re-open I asked everyone to respond letting me know if they were coming back to work. Everyone responded except Michael. Never heard from him again. So, I terminated him under "job abandonment". He then went to work at another local shop, and so I was happy for him and went on with my life and business. A couple of weeks ago I started to get some messages from mutual friends asking me what Michael was posting about on Facebook and other platforms and it turns out he has been posting derogatory comments (all lies) about how we treated him horribly and these could affect my business. None of our staff members can see these posts directly because he has blocked us all. We have, however, been receiving screenshots from mutual friends. Again, this went down over two years ago! I kept him employed I paid him through the pandemic including doing his unemployment paperwork weekly. I didn't fire him. He chose not to come back to work I demoted him and kept him at the same pay rate I tried every way that I could to help him find help I simply want this to stop as I did nothing wrong and did much more than any other employer would have. His parents are enablers and are probably behind this.

Hello, In Georgia, defamation consist of producing a false and defamatory statement about another. Libel consists of writing (via text, social media, or even through a review) a false and malicious defamation of another, expressed in print, writing, pictures, or signs, tending to injure the reputation of the person. Finally, slander of (oral defamation) occurs by making charges against another in reference to his trade, office, or profession, calculated to injure him therein; or uttering any disparaging words productive of special damage which flows naturally therefrom. You can write a letter to your former employee outlining the law and describing how they defamed you and your business. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me and set up a consultation. Thanks, Meghan K Thomas, Esq

Employment Offer


Asked on Dec 8, 2023

How to compare multiple employment offers?

I recently received multiple job offers and I'm having difficulty deciding between them. I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of each offer, and would like to know what considerations should be taken into account when comparing multiple employment offers. I'm concerned about the salary, benefits, vacation time, and job responsibilities, but I'm not sure what other factors I should consider.

Merry A.

Answered Dec 12, 2023

Congratulations on receiving multiple job offers. In addition to what you listed as considerations, above, you can review things such as whether these are all for employment (rather than independent contractor); whether you would be considered "at will" or would be given a number of rights as an employee; and whether the employer would provide training/mentorship etc. If I were in your shoes, I'd compare reviews of each employer, as an employer - this can be hard to find, but has a limited number of reviews of certain employers. If at all possible, reach out to some current employees at each company and ask the same or similar questions, such as "what do you like or dislike most" about your job and the employer?

Amendment To Employment Contract


Asked on Nov 23, 2021

Who helps with healthcare employment contracts?

I am a Nurse Practitioner and work for a national wound care company. I have a current employment contract but my company has made an amendment to it which discusses my newer compensation model (work RVU). I would like someone to look over my contract with this amendment. Can you help me find someone. I am in Massachusetts (Springfield area). Thank you

Richard G.

Answered Jan 4, 2022

I would be happy to review your contract. I am a registered nurse myself as well as an attorney and have a great deal of experience in contract review. My flat fee is $300 for this service and would result in a thorough evaluation of all aspects (from a legal perspective) of the current contract and how the amendment alters that legal perspective.

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.

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.
