Leveling the playing field between employer and employee
The relationship between employers and their employees is contractual in nature. And in nearly all cases, the employer exercises an inordinate amount of bargaining power that enables it to essentially prescribe employment contracts without negotiation. But in certain cases, employers may be able to level the playing field with the help of an attorney. The team at the Sanford Law Firm has helped numerous employees in Arkansas and beyond review and negotiate employment contracts as well as avoid unfair or illegal provisions in existing contracts. We fight hard for our clients, standing up to their employers to get them fair deals.
Legal counsel for various types of employment agreements
The employer/employee relationship can involve numerous agreements and provisions that govern the rights and obligations of both parties. These agreements can have a very real effect on your rights:
- Separation and severance agreements — Our Arkansas employment agreement attorneys help our clients understand their compensation, rights and obligations under these agreements before they sign on the dotted line
- Employment contracts — We level the playing field during employment contract negotiations by working with employers to get our clients favorable terms
