Negotiating a strong employment contract in St. Lucie County

A poorly negotiated agreement can bind you to undesirable obligations and to lower pay than you are worth— and may even force you to forgo future opportunities. But a strategically negotiated employment contract can protect your interests and give you job security. Our employment law attorneys can help you get the terms you want in your next contract.

We can advise you on:

  • Terms of the job — including income, benefits, bonuses and stock options
  • Severance packages
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Ownership of intellectual property, copyrights and patents
  • Independent contractor agreements
  • Partnership agreements

When employment termination is a breach of contract

Florida is an at-will state that allows employers to fire its employees for no reason. However, a contract that establishes your length of employment overrides your and your employer’s at-will rights. In this case, terminating you without cause may be a breach of your employment contract.

Our lawyer anticipates that your employer may try using a defense of creating a false cause for your wrongful termination. Our legal team counters this common defense by building a strong case for your successful work record.

Noncompete and nondisclosure disputes

Employers are permitted to use noncompete and nondisclosure agreements to protect their trade secrets. However, many businesses ask their employees to sign these contracts to squash their future competition, which is not allowed. A noncompete agreement that covers too broad a geographic area or an unreasonable scope of jobs may be considered invalid. A nondisclosure agreement that keeps you from working in your field may also be invalidated.
