Westchester Employment Terms Negotiation Attorneys

When an employee is terminated, laid off or leaves the company to pursue other opportunities, a variety of issues can arise. When hiring, many businesses require employees to sign employment contracts that contain provisions governing the possibility that the employer/employee relationship might sever in the future. When an employee departs, the employer may attach a general release to the severance package. While every case has unique circumstances, disputes concerning severance, non-competition and employee non-solicitation restrictions have become commonplace.

At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, we represent executives, managers, employees and business owners throughout Westchester County and the New York metropolitan area. Whether an employee was terminated due to downsizing, a merger or performance, employment agreements should be reviewed by experienced legal counsel on behalf of all parties.
