Establish Effective Employment Agreements, Avoid Complications

Arizona Employment Law Firm

Drafting and enforcing effective contracts is critical to any business relationship. It is especially important for employees and their employers to clearly establish mutual expectations regarding compensation, confidential information, the ability to work in a competing position with future employers, and eligibility for severance upon the termination of employment. At Matheson & Matheson, P.L.C., our knowledgeable lawyers have many years of experience successfully handling employment contracts for professionals, executives and other key personnel. We put that experience to work for Arizona employees and businesses by negotiating, drafting, reviewing and enforcing all kinds of employment agreements that can protect your rights, including:

  • Severance agreements can contain language addressing compensation, benefits, positive job references, non-disparagement and more.
  • Non-compete/non-solicitation agreements are created to protect employers’ rights. Before signing, an employee can and should protect his or her rights by working to limit the geographical reach of the contract and the duties and time span for which the agreement applies.

Helping Employees Avoid Overly Restrictive Contracts

Your employer is looking to improve their profit margin and maintain as much control over its business as possible. This may result in a request that you sign an overly restrictive employment contract, which limits your future employment opportunities.

Employees enjoy numerous rights through any employment engagement but usually face the most legal risks and opportunities when they begin and end a job. Severance agreements and non-compete/non-solicitation agreements can protect basic rights when executed properly by an experienced contract and employment law lawyer.

At Matheson & Matheson, we will proactively assist in negotiating reasonable terms for your employment contract, as well as advise and defend employees against overbroad and unenforceable limitations on future employment. With one of our experienced employment law attorneys protecting your interests, you know that your needs are being addressed.
