When you enter into an employment contract — whether you are the employer or the employee — it is a legally binding agreement that will have financial consequences for you. A such, it is important to review closely all of the terms and conditions of the agreement so that you know exactly what you’re getting into.
The terms of an employment agreement are enforceable in court only to a certain degree of reasonableness. What that means is that if the employer or employee demands certain elements be included in the contracts — and if those elements are unreasonable — they will be stricken from the agreement by a Florida judge. Unreasonable terms might even compromise the entire agreement altogether.
At the Law Offices of Gary A. Costales, we help both employees and employers investigate whether a particular employment contract will indeed hold up in court. As always, it is important to perform this kind of review before the employment contract is finalized and signed by the parties. It is also preferable when our firm drafts the entire contract up from its inception to ensure that everything is appropriately worded to have the most strength and resiliency should litigation ever be required.
The Law Offices of Gary A. Costales is available to speak with any South Florida area employers or employees about their employment contract needs. We also offer an absolutely free first-time consultation to potential new clients. We will listen to all of the facts surrounding your situation, ask you the appropriate questions to evaluate your employment contract and advise you of your legal rights and options under state and federal the law.
