Employees who choose to sign employment agreements before understanding all their options may be unaware of the legal rights they’re forfeiting, not to mention any future obligations resulting from a signed agreement. For example, severance and employment agreements may include terms that are restrictive covenants—including non-solicitation, confidentiality, non-compete, and non-disparagement clauses—or other conditions and terms that significantly restrict an employee’s ability to gain new employment. In many cases, the conditions and terms of these agreements can be negotiated and improved for the benefit of the employee.
