Reviewing And Negotiating Employee Contracts For Employers And Employees
Most Connecticut employees are hired on an “at-will” basis. However, some employees, often high-level executives, must sign one or more employment contracts as a condition of their hiring. For an employment contract to be effective, its terms must be fairly negotiated and clear to both sides.
The best way to ensure that both parties will abide by an employment contract is to work with an experienced employment law attorney. At Mitchell & Sheahan, P.C., we have considerable experience representing both workers and employers in the Stratford area. This familiarity with both sides of the law can give you an advantage whether you are on the employer or employee side.
