Severance, Noncompetition Agreements, and Employment Contracts

Employees are not necessarily entitled to severance when they leave a job, but in many instances, severance packages can be negotiated to help ease an employee’s transition out of a job. Severance packages often cover the needs of an employee for several weeks or months until they acquire their new job. We have negotiated many severance packages for employees.

Non-Compete Agreements

Likewise, many employers require employees to sign noncompetition agreements that limit their options when they leave employment. Non-compete agreements are often set in place to protect an employer from having clients or valuable company information stolen and used against them. We have represented numerous employees who have been forced to defend against noncompetition agreements that go too far, that go beyond merely protecting an employer’s legitimate interests, or that overly restrict employees from engaging in their chosen profession. A non-compete agreement that keeps you from continuing to use your career experience and skills in the future is harmful to your well-being and can limit your employment options in the future. While many noncompetition matters can be negotiated without going to court, we’ve also gone to trial to defend employees who have been accused of violating noncompetition agreements, and we’ve gotten those agreements modified or eliminated.
