We have reviewed hundreds of employment contracts (or a written employment offer) on behalf of employees.
In our experience, a written job offer (or employment contracts) will almost always take away some of your legal rights.
As we have written before, the date you sign the contract is important. Depending on how it is written the termination clause may not be enforceable. We have also shared negotiating tips for senior executives. We have also written about the implications of specific terms that are often included in an employment contract.
Normally, we spend an hour or so with you reviewing the job offer and providing you with our comments and suggested changes. Depending on your negotiating position we may be able to help you improve the offer. At a minimum, you will understand your rights and obligations if you accept the offer.
