Every employer-employee relationship has a life cycle. Employees are hired and, at some point, they may leave your organization. Each phase has hidden risks. When clients recruit a new employee, Much's labor and employment attorneys work with you to develop and negotiate employment agreements. We also assess the enforceability of agreements you already have in place and identify any necessary improvements to comply with evolving laws. To protect your confidential and proprietary information and relationships with your customers and employees, we prepare restrictive covenants (such as confidentiality, non-competition, and non-solicitation agreements).

Our attorneys also provide valuable guidance when an individual is leaving your employment. We have extensive experience developing and negotiating separation agreements – whether for an individual employee or for multi-employee workforce reductions – and, if necessary, we will work with you to enforce those agreements.
