Employment Contracts, Restrictive Covenants, and Non-Competes
Employment contracts are becoming more prevalent in the workplace. These contracts often identify the conditions of employment, compensation, and an employer’s and employee’s responsibilities. Restrictive covenants between an employee and an employer may also be found in employment contracts, stand alone agreements, and other documents.
Types of restrictive covenants include:
- Agreements not to compete
- Not to solicit employees
- Not to solicit clients
Many employers are also having employees contractually agree to bring claims against the employer in arbitration rather than state or federal court. At Meredith Malatino, we are experienced in reviewing and drafting employment agreements and restrictive covenant agreements. Additionally, we frequently handle breach of contract claims involving employment contracts and/or restrictive covenants.
If you need assistance in handling an employment contract and/or restrictive covenant matter, contact Meredith Malatino at (201) 518-1914 or make an electronic inquiry here for a complimentary phone consultation.
