Pitfalls in Negotiating Employment Contracts
Nicole Howell & Jim Gould, both Partners at HHBG Employment Lawyers

Knowledge is power! Written employment agreements are primarily designed to limit the employer’s liability if it decides to end the relationship as well as minimize the impact of your departure on its business. This webinar is for anyone who is in an employment relationship or will be in the future. Understanding your rights in the workplace is not simply a good idea, it is essential. Even if you have already signed a contract, we will help you understand how you can negotiate a better one in the future (once you get that promotion or move on to the next employer).
