Employment Contracts and Agreements
At Ervin Jewett, P.C., we have extensive experience negotiating employment agreements for executives, decisionmakers, and other highly compensated employees. Norfolk employment lawyer Reid Ervin brings decades of focused experience to the field of employment law. Together with our team, we are equipped to counsel our clients as to the various aspects of employment contracts, and we are ready to jump in to protect your contractual rights if the Company is not prepared to honor its Agreement with you.
Virginia Beach Noncompete Agreements Attorneys
One of the most important parts of any employment agreement is a noncompete agreement. A noncompete agreement can dramatically limit a person’s ability to seek employment within his or her chosen field. Further, violation of a noncompete agreement, in certain instances, can lead to significant legal liability.
Fortunately for employees, Virginia courts look with disfavor on noncompete agreements that are overly broad or too burdensome on employees. Whether you may be entering into a contract that contains a noncompete clause, or if you want to determine the validity of an existing noncompete clause, our law firm can advise you of your rights under Virginia law.
Negotiating Severance Agreements
Our employment contract lawyers are also often called on to negotiate severance agreements for key employees in the Norfolk and Virginia Beach areas. The terms of a severance agreement can dramatically impact how an executive or other key employee is able to move forward with his or her career. We will advise you of your legal rights and brainstorm with you to develop a sound exit strategy. We will negotiate with your employer in order to protect your rights and maximize your compensation package.
