Missouri Employment Law Practice

Employment Agreements

Employment agreements and employment contracts often govern your employment relationship and can even affect you after you terminated the relationship with your former employer. Particularly important are clauses such as the non-compete clause, non-solicitation clause, and other severance agreement terms. Our firm has extensive experience reviewing, drafting, and litigating a wide variety of issues and complaints which arise under the area of employment agreements and employment contracts.

Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination occurs when an employer, manager, or fellow employee identifies you as belonging to a legally protected group because of a physical or other characteristic and improperly uses their their authority to influence you, treats your unfairly, or wrongfully fires you.

Protected Classes/Characteristics for Employment Discrimination:

Employment Agreement Drafting, Review and Litigation

Employment agreements often govern the terms of employment and may include the duration, duties, compensation, benefits, and reasons the employee may be terminated. Our office understands the complex balance which must be struck between employee and employer when  entering a new employment relationship or when reviewing on-going agreements.

Whether you need advice about an employment offer, you want to draft a proposed employment agreement with your employer, or you need an attorney to review an active agreement, our office has the experience and resources to resolve your legal issue.

Non Compete and Non Solicitation Clauses

Non compete and non solicitation clauses are commonly used by employers to limit the ability of a former employee to get a job working with certain competitors. Oftentimes, these restrictive covenants state a specific time and geographic range in which a former employee is limited in his or her job search. While Missouri courts have found some of these restrictions enforceable in particular circumstances, they are generally unenforceable as a restraint on trade. Our office can help you navigate the limitations of your non compete and non solicitation clauses to determine whether they are enforceable, and if so, which employers you might engage with otherwise.

If your employer or future employer asks you to sign a contract you should be fully aware of your rights and obligations if you sign. Please do not hesitate to contact our office to determine if you should seek legal advice before you agree to your employer's conditions.
