Should you sign that Offer Letter?

Sep 13, 2017

Have you been asked to sign back a written offer of employment, or sign an employment contract?

This offer letter or employment contract has likely been drafted by the company’s lawyer and it likely takes away some of your rights.

There is no such thing as a standard offer letter or employment contract. Some companies try to include many clauses in every offer/agreement. However, the fact is that some of the clauses are often negotiable.

We have reviewed hundreds of employment contracts over the years. Some are fair; some are not. MacLeod Law Firm can tell you which clauses in the contract are not fair in your circumstances and why.

If you are currently employed and have other job offers then you will never be in a better negotiating position than you are now. Take advantage of it with our help.

To determine whether the job offer is fair in your circumstances, we need to meet with you and discuss your situation. This is called an initial consultation.

During the initial consultation, we gather the facts we need to give you an informed legal opinion. MacLeod Law Firm provides you with comments and suggestions on how to protect and in some cases enhance your rights.
