Contract Review Attorneys in Birmingham
Put Years of Experience in Your Corner
Alabama is an "at will" employment state. In an “at will” employment state, an employer is legally permitted to fire an employee at any time for many reasons, or for no reason at all. Likewise, an employee is free to leave a job at any time for any or no reason. There are very few exceptions to the “at-will” rule. One exception to the “at-will” nature of employment relationships in Alabama is when a contract for employment exists.
Although Alabama is an “at will” employment state, contracts are still used to formalize the details of an employment relationship, such as compensation, benefits, and terms. Contracts for employment normally include many terms and conditions which an employee must follow or face termination. These terms and conditions may seem straightforward on paper, but could have several interpretations.
When your current or prospective employer has presented you with any type of contract, it is in your best interests to first consult with an experienced contract review attorney. The attorneys at Michel | King have years of experience in reviewing contracts and negotiating for the best terms to protect you as the employee. If you have been presented with a contract or have questions regarding an existing employment contract, contact the attorneys at Michel | King to ensure your rights are protected.
