Skilled Drafting And Enforcement Of Contracts/Agreements
Employment agreements can be complex. At Katz Melinger PLLC, our knowledgeable attorneys regularly draft, analyze and enforce employment contracts, including severance agreements and noncompete agreements.
Protecting Employers Through Comprehensive Employment Agreements
With a broad range of experience in civil litigation, business transactions and employment law, we can anticipate areas of conflict and guard against disputes. If disputes do arise, we are skilled and effective litigators who can protect your rights and interests in state and federal court. From drafting initial employment contracts to reviewing employee handbooks, we help businesses in a variety of industries promote a healthy workplace environment and comply with federal, state and local laws.
We help employers and employees protect their interests when negotiating or signing severance agreements. At a minimum, most severance agreements include important provisions regarding an employee’s rights under federal and state civil rights laws, including discrimination and harassment.
Severance agreements may also seek to limit the ability of a former employee to compete against the company and may require the employee to refrain from disclosing confidential information.
Do not sign a severance agreement until you speak with an experienced employment law attorney. At Katz Melinger PLLC, we will inform you of your rights under state and federal law and what you are giving up by signing a severance agreement.
Noncompete And Nonsolicitation Agreements
Noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements, either as stand-alone agreements or as part of an employment contract, are becoming popular across a range of industries.
In New York, noncompete or nonsolicitation agreements are legal, but have certain restrictions regarding their enforceability. Katz Melinger PLLC represents both employers and employees in drafting and enforcement of these agreements. Whether you are seeking to create an enforceable noncompete or nonsolicitation agreement or are seeking an injunction to prevent the continued actions of a former employee, we can help.
As litigators who have a track record of effective representation on both sides of employment law matters, we know how to best represent your interests.
