NEW YORK CITY LAW FIRM FOR EMPLOYERS + EXECUTIVES
New York City business owners and corporate executives face a range of employment related issues throughout their professional career, such that establishing the appropriate legal parameters to their employment relationships are of paramount importance. No longer can you rely upon a handshake, as handshake deals are constantly subverted by individuals and their cut-throat attorneys to exploit your generosity. Given this sharp reality, it is imperative that your employment relationships are clearly set out in employment agreements.
An employment agreement / executive services contract is your most effective means of protecting yourself legally and financially. It must be negotiated and drafted in your best interests, with the legal terms being clear and concise - so as to avoid the opportunity for manipulation and subversion.
Thereafter, employers need to continually supplement their initial legal contracts, with a legal compliance program, which is intended to reinforce the obligations of employees and contractors to adhere to heightened workplace standards. Such a compliance program would include the preparation of workplace manuals and circulars, the provision of employee training sessions and the conducting of workplace reviews and investigations (and when necessary an employee termination strategy, when an employee needs to be released from his/her employment). And than there is the unenviable situation a former employee charging you of improper or illegal dismissal. Each of these elements is essential to maintaining a business environment that minimizes your exposure to employment-related legal challenges.
Unfortunately, employment relations do go bad and the parties can have differing perspectives as to cause of its failure and responsibility for the consequences. In such circumstances, the prior prepatory work will prove important, yet it cannot assure you that a dispute will transpire, which will require a legal resolution to the dispute - whether by way of mediation, arbitration or the trial courts. And whereas it may be possible to negotiate an acceptable settlement, there are situations where the sides are too far apart or one side or the other is too outrageous in its demands, such that obtaining the judgment of the mediator, arbitrator or trial judge is the only way to attain the resolution of the employment dispute.
