Contracts between employers and employees exist as a written agreement describing what each party must contribute in the employment period, as well as the terms of the employment.
Employment contracts are great for employees and employers to negotiate terms and lay out exactly what obligations each must fulfill for the contract to be in good standing, but sometimes employment contracts are lengthy, full of legal jargon that can be confusing, and have clauses in them that may hurt the employee after leaving the company. If you are presented with an employment contract, it is in your best interest to hire a employment contract attorney to help you interpret and negotiate the contract before you sign.
Here are some aspects that may appear in your employment contract when it is presented to you:
Before signing an employment contract, it is important to go over the terms you have been presented with a employment contract attorney to ensure that your rights and best interests are protected during employment.
Sometimes it’s possible that what you negotiated with an employer did not translate into the writing of the contract and what you believed you had verbally agreed will not be executed. Other times, the legalese in which contracts are written are complicated and could be the difference between a severance at the end of your term with a company or receiving nothing at all. Furthermore, in some industries and positions, it’s important to discuss copyright laws and intellectual ownership with your employer to determine what you created is yours or belongs to the company.
Proper negotiation before signing a contract will help you as well. If you don’t agree with the terms presented in an employment contract, then a employment contract lawyer can help you properly edit or rewrite a contract to present to your employer, helping you to achieve the terms you desire in your position.
A employment contract lawyer will be able to guide you through your employment contract step-by-step and help you determine how each aspect will affect your job and your life after employment. It’s critical that you do not sign employment contracts without consulting an employment agreement lawyer in Ohio.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
