Employment Contract Disputes

Having an employment contract in place does not make it enforceable. When an issue or conflict arises, employees and employers often disagree considerably regarding the meaning and scope of employment contracts. When the situation flares, experienced legal representation is imperative.

Proven Experience Negotiating And Litigating Employment Disputes In Delaware

With more than 19 years of experience in the Delaware business community, Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, provides clients with the knowledge necessary to resolve any conflict centering on an employment agreement.

Seek our assistance with any dispute involving:

  • Restrictive covenants — rights and restrictions under noncompete and confidentiality agreements
  • Employment contracts — whether an employee with a contract can be fired and what implications and obligations apply afterward
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Separation and severance agreements
  • Professional and executive contracts
  • Compensation-related contracts — equity agreements, stock option bonuses, incentive agreements, etc.

Our firm advises both employees and employers on their rights and obligations relative to the contract at issue. We develop sound strategies that align the needs and goals of our clients with the options for relief. Our lawyers are accomplished litigators, but those skills inherently involve the art of negotiation and effective communication as well. Whenever possible, we look for amicable methods of fixing the problem when such alternatives are preferable to litigation.

Before a fight ensues, we review contracts and employment agreements with clients — both employees and employers — to ensure their interests are fully protected and represented in the document. We counsel clients on the full import of an agreement's terms and conditions on their individual employment rights, bargaining power and future ability to obtain legal remedies.
