Employment Contracts

Employment contracts are the foundation of virtually every employee/employer relationship. At James L. Arruebarrena, L.L.C., we help workers understand the terms of employment agreements, negotiate fair contracts and take action when an employer breaches an agreement.

Attorney James Arruebarrena has extensive experience with virtually all types of employment contracts, including:

  • Employment agreements
  • Vendor contracts
  • Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Oral employment agreements

Drafting And Negotiating Effective Contracts

When negotiating a contract with your employer, keep in mind that they are trying to create terms that serve their best interests. Having your own lawyer can help ensure that you are treated fairly.

If you are an executive or other highly paid professional, the terms of your contract are particularly important. They can determine your income, benefits and even where you can or cannot work if you leave the company. Contact our firm for assistance reviewing your employment agreement and negotiating terms that protect your interests.

Contract Litigation

Although contracts are intended to minimize ambiguity and provide clear terms, disagreements over the details and intent of contracts may arise between parties. If you have been accused of violating a contract with your employer, or if you believe your employer has failed to honor a contract, we can review the documentation and give you candid advice.
