New York Employment Lawyers Protect Your Best Interests in Employer Negotiations
When you are offered an employment contract or severance agreement, the pending change in your employment status raises many questions: How do I know if this is a good offer? Should I negotiate for something better? What might be negotiable? What might be better?
In most instances, the best course of action is to not sign anything until you have discussed your legal options with a knowledgeable New York employment agreements lawyer. The law governing New York employment contracts and New York severance agreements is complicated. At Hiller, PC, our employment lawyers can help level the playing field in talks with your employer; work to improve the deal you’ve been offered; and help you avoid unexpected legal consequences that may not be apparent from a cursory reading of the agreement.
How We Help
Our New York employment agreements lawyers have extensive experience negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements.
If you are presented with an employment contract, don’t assume the employer wields all the power. Let our New York employment contracts lawyers review the proposed agreement and make sure the offer on the table is a good one. Often, we can negotiate more favorable terms. Those terms might include an increase in compensation; bonus or incentive provisions; benefits or a better benefits package; and/or a travel allowance, moving expenses, or other employment perquisites “perks”.
A severance agreement is an agreement entered into in connection with the termination of the employment relationship. In most instances, the employer agrees to pay the employee a sum of money, in exchange for the employee waiving certain rights or claims that may arise out of the employment relationship. The law governing severance agreements can be a minefield for an inexperienced negotiator. Our New York severance agreements lawyers understand the nuances of the law and can advise you on the wisdom of signing the severance agreement proposed by your employer. We will make sure you fully understand the rights you are waiving and negotiate terms that provide you with the post-employment protections you have earned.
