Effective Employment Contracts

An employment contract, which defines the relationship between an employer and an employee, can be one of the most important documents to your business.  At Ruderman, Horn & Esmerado, P.C., we understand the importance of effective employment contracts.  Our experience also extends to restrictive covenants, including non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements.  Our firm has the experience in drafting, reviewing and negotiating the employment contracts that you need to ensure that you begin the relationship on firm legal ground and that your business is protected when that relationship ends.

Maximizing the Advantages of Severance Agreements

Severance agreements, also called separation agreements, have become critical in our litigious society in minimizing businesses’ exposure to employment-related litigation.  Our office has extensive experience in drafting, reviewing and negotiating severance agreements relating to both individual separations as well as layoffs.  We strive to maximize their benefits.  From a business perspective, severance agreements provide an employer not only with an opportunity to obtain a comprehensive release, but also with the chance to address vital post employment issues including covenants-not-to-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality obligations.
