Employment Agreements in Pittsburgh

Our Lawyer Can Help You Avoid Disputes

Proper drafting of an employment agreement can help protect both the employer and the employee from future legal disputes. It is much easier to prevent issues from arising down the road than it is to resolve those issues once one party takes legal action. When drafting employment agreements, employers and employees can benefit from consulting with an experienced employment law attorney.

At the Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, our Pittsburgh employment lawyers provide experienced counsel and representation to clients facing work-related issues. We can help businesses or prospective employees by drafting or reviewing employment agreements. Our firm also provides representation in litigation of disputes over employment agreements.

Drafting & Reviewing Agreements

At the Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, our attorney can serve your legal needs by drafting or reviewing contracts, or litigating any disputes over the terms of employment agreements.

This includes:

  • Covenants not to compete, also known as non-compete agreements
  • Trade secret and proprietary information agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • General employment contracts
  • Injunctions and requests for injunctions

Employment agreements are often complex and trying to negotiate and understand the terms of a contract can be difficult. By obtaining an evaluation of your agreement from an experienced and knowledgeable employment law attorney, you can feel confident about the terms of your agreement and its enforceability.

Assistance with Many Issues

In addition, our employment law practice includes representation for cases of discrimination and sexual harassment that occur in the workplace. We also provide representation for labor unions and union members, as well as assistance for workers' compensation and Social Security disability benefit claims.

We have years of experience litigating employment contract claims in both state and federal courts. We pursue and defend claims for injunctions to enforce restrictive covenants not to compete, breaches of contract, pension and benefit disputes, and compensation disputes, in both state and federal courts.
