Employment Law Contracts And Agreements In New York
Employment agreements are enforceable and are governed by contract laws in the state of New York. Employment law contracts set forth the terms of an employment agreement and the responsibilities and requirements of both parties. Employment contracts often include details like:
- An employee’s salary
- An employee’s benefits
- The length of employment
- Reasons an employee can be terminated
Employment agreements can also include terms that govern an employee’s behavior after the employee leaves the employer. For example, a noncompete clause can dictate where an employee can work after they leave the company, and a nonsolicitation clause can prevent an employee from soliciting company clients or customers.
An employment contract can also dictate how disagreements regarding the contract terms will be resolved and may even prevent an employee’s ability to bring a lawsuit to court. As experienced corporate litigators, the attorneys can negotiate, enforce or dispute the terms of an employment contract.
At-Will Employment In New York
Most employers hire employees on an at-will basis. In the absence of an employment law contract that spells out the agreed-upon terms of an employment agreement, an employer can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all. However, state and federal laws prevent an employer from engaging in discriminatory practices. For example, an employee cannot be fired on the basis of race, religion, sex, sexual preference or gender identity.
The attorneys at PM Law PC give clients a voice, and advocate for their best interests and protect their rights under the law. If you believe that you have been wrongfully terminated or that you or your company has been accused of discriminatory practices, they can represent your best interests.
