Employment Contracts

Most employees work on an "at-will" basis, meaning the employer has the power to terminate employment at any time for any reason not prohibited by law. However, many companies agree to employment contracts with executives and highly specialized workers. Companies of all sizes and employees throughout western New York state rely on The Tarantino Law Firm, LLP, for detailed assistance drafting and reviewing employment contracts.

Comprehensive Employment Contract Advice

Our labor lawyers are prepared to advise you on all types of employment contracts, including:

  • Restorative contract agreements
  • Compensation agreements
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Nonsolicitation agreements

An employment contract may cover all of these matters or just one or two of them, depending on the position and your needs.

Specifics Clarified

In addition, you will have a clear idea of your rights and responsibilities during the employment period. The contract can specify the employee's pay, as well as his or her benefits package and the process for filing a grievance. This will minimize the risk of litigation later, but if a lawsuit does arise, we will work to deliver the most cost-effective solution possible.
