Employment in Texas is generally at-will and most employees will not have a formal contract. In some professions, however, formal employment agreements are becoming increasingly common. In these situations, it is important to have a clear understanding of your rights and responsibilities under the contract. Non-compete provisions, non-disclosure agreements, and other commons clauses in employment contracts are often governed by complex laws and it important to know exactly what your rights are.
Having your employment contract reviewed by a competent business attorney before you commit to an agreement can sometimes help you to negotiate more favorable terms and protect yourself in case of unforeseen circumstances. If you need assistance in reviewing or negotiating an employment contract, contact a Houston attorney today to set up a consultation.
