Missouri Employment Law Attorneys

Employment and Non-Compete Agreements

Employment Attorney in Missouri Explains Contracts

Some employers offer their employees or ask their employees to sign a written employment contract. Such agreements are usually drafted by the employer's counsel, but employees are too often not represented by counsel in that type of situation. As a result, employment agreements tend to be written in the employer's favor. If your employer offers you or asks you to sign an employment agreement, you may need legal counsel to fully understand your legal rights and obligations under the agreement.

An employment agreement may affect not only your contractual relationship with your employer while you work there in terms of compensation or how and when the agreement may be terminated but may also contain terms that restrict or limit your ability to work even after you leave to go work elsewhere, such as a non-compete, non-solicitation, and / or confidentiality agreement. If you need legal assistance to help you understand or interpret your employment contract or to negotiate the terms of your agreements, do not hesitate to contact Riggan Law Firm as soon as possible and retain trusted legal counsel.
