Before you sign an executive agreement, consider obtaining legal advice from an employment law expert. Whether your employment is ending voluntarily or involuntarily, you can bet that there are important issues that need to be addressed. Issues like whether you are entitled to a bonus or severance pay. Or, whether your non-competition agreement is valid and enforceable, and, if it is, whether the company may be willing to release you from it in return for a compromise of some sort from you. These are delicate issues that have important financial consequences. When you are facing these types of significant issues, our lawyers are able to help you work through them.
