You’re looking for a new job and you finally get the offer of your dreams. The problem is that your new employer wants you to sign an employment agreement and maybe a separate non-disclosure agreement.
What do you do? Our advice is to always seek legal counsel before committing to an employment agreement to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are not agreeing to too much. Even if you think that the agreement is not actually enforceable, disagreements about this later could mean unanticipated and unwanted fees and costs (legal or otherwise) if and when you want to terminate your employment. Having independent legal counsel review your employment agreement before you start could save you time and money in the long run.
