Most employers do not negotiate employment agreements with an employees as a routine practice, but in some cases agreements can be beneficial to all parties.

If you work with an attorney to craft a smart and serious negotiation strategy, you can ensure that you are adequately compensated, and that you are not caught off guard by provisions that could harm you later, such as non-compete agreements or trade secret-related provisions.

As with all legal claims, deadlines are crucial. Employment contract and severance offers often contain provisions stating how long an employee has to respond with an acceptance or rejection of the agreement. Retaining an attorney to assist you in reviewing and negotiating these agreements can be of great value, and getting started earlier maximizes your ability to work closely with your attorney to form a strong negotiation strategy.
