Looking Out For Your Best Interests In Employment Contracts

The purpose of an employment contract is to bring two entities together in a formally established work relationship. One would hope that an employment contract is mutually beneficial and protects all those involved, but there are times when these contracts can be detrimental to a worker's future. If you are looking for assistance with an employment contract, an experienced attorney can review the terms of your employment and even represent you in court if necessary.

Our team at Formisano & Company provides comprehensive employment law services to meet an array of client needs. Combined, we have more than 50 years of experience standing up for workers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts who need legal advocacy. Whether we review your employment contract or represent you in a dispute, we will always keep your best interests at the forefront of our efforts.

Safeguarding Your Professional Livelihood

While many contracts carry similar language and make references to similar agreements throughout, every contract should be approached as a unique document with serious implications. Common elements in contracts include:

  • Confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Employment exclusivity
  • Termination clauses
  • Arbitration preferences
  • Ownership of inventions

It is imperative that you have an attorney look over your employment documents, especially if you are not experienced in working with contracts. Certain clauses in employment contracts could potentially give undue advantages to employers. A non-compete agreement, for example, may prevent you from working in your industry for a period of time after you and your employer part ways.
