The vast majority of Employees sign employment agreements without getting any legal advice. Often the significance of these agreements only becomes clear when the employee is terminated. Terms that: restrict severance, impose non-solicitation or non-competition obligations, can be disasterous to the terminated employee’s attempts to find re-employment.

Employers impose significant and onerous obligations on employees usually without any discussion-providing the agreement after the employee has accepted the offer of employment or making offers subject to acceptance of terms and policies that you haven’t had a chance to review nor consider.  The important thing to realize is that the Employers’ lawyers have drafted the employment agreement and have already provided extensive legal advice to the employer. You -the employee, are the only party entering a contract and an important new relationship without legal advice.
