Serving Northern and Central New Jersey
We represent employees in connection with individual contracts related to their work.
We draft, negotiate, review, and revise executive contracts and other employment agreements. We also represent employees in cases of breach of contract when an employer has violated the terms of an employment contract.
Restrictive covenants are contracts that restrict the freedom of the employee. The most common types of restrictive covenants that we deal with are non-competes and non-solicits. Non-competes limit an employee’s right to go to work for a competitor for a certain amount of time after the termination of employment. Non-solicits restrict an employee’s right to solicit work from and/or do work for the former employer’s clients or customers for a certain amount of time after the termination of employment. We negotiate, review, and revise restrictive covenants at the outset of employment or when they are first presented to a current employee. We also challenge the enforceability of restrictive covenants when employees leave. Finally, we defend employees in lawsuits by their former employers seeking to enforce restrictive covenants.
We regularly review and revise severance agreements for employees. If the employee has a potential legal claim, we use that claim as leverage to negotiate increased severance pay.
If you need advice about a severance agreement, non-compete agreement, non-disclosure agreement or any other employment agreements or contracts, call New Jersey’s employment contract and non-compete attorneys at Lenzo & Reis, LLC at 973-845-9922.
