Employment Agreements and Severance Pay

Our attorneys also help workers understand and deal with contract disputes, including those related to non-compete agreements, severance agreements, and employment contracts.

We counsel workers who have been asked to sign contracts, help workers understand their existing contractual obligations, and represent workers in contract disputes through mediation, arbitration, or trial.  We also represent employees in matters relating to denial of employee benefits, such as health insurance, vacation and leave, and disability pay.
