Employment Contract Lawyers

We regularly advise and represent employees in all aspects of their employment relationships — from hiring to separation. An employer may ask an employee to sign a variety of contracts or agreements that can dramatically affect compensation given to an employee or an employee’s future ability to earn a living. Many employment contracts serve the interests of the employer but fail to provide protection to employees.

An experienced employment attorney can review these contracts and provide crucial advice to assure that the language fully, accurately, and clearly sets forth the terms of employment. An attorney can assist with negotiating and drafting the terms of the agreement, maximizing the compensation and benefits of an employee or minimizing the concessions an employee must make both at the time of accepting a position and at the time a position is terminated.

Employers may offer departing employees a severance agreement in exchange for a release of certain legal rights. It is important for an employee to understand the terms of the severance and the rights that are being surrendered.

Employment Contract Dispute Attorneys

Furthermore, employment-related contract issues arise when employers engage in breach of contract by taking against their employees in violation of employment agreements. While most North Carolina employees are “at will,” some employees work under an employment contract. Those employees may be able to demonstrate that their employer’s right to terminate them is limited by a contract specifying the length of employment or that employment will be terminated only “for cause” or for specific reasons.

Client Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Bill Mills on a fairly difficult and complicated matter. He showed a tremendous amount of sensitivity, understanding, compassion and patience during the times that we really needed it. Bill was very knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful. He was also extremely thorough, open, honest, and persistent in his efforts. Bill did not leave any stone unturned which made it possible for us to have a successful outcome. I highly recommend using Bill Mills and his firm.”

- Robert James

“Bill Mills is a fantastic trial attorney and the consummate professional. He is a tireless advocate, always well prepared, and genuinely cares about each and every client. I have had the privilege to co-counsel with Bill on two major cases, both of which resulted in excellent recoveries for our clients. Bill is a delightful person and a  pleasure to work with. I look forward to our next case together.”

- Irv Cantor, Attorney in Richmond, Va.

“I came to Glenn, Mills, Fisher, and Mahoney with an extremely difficult legal dilemma that seemed impossible to resolve fairly and favorably. I was completely floored–and relieved beyond belief–when Carlos Mahoney called the next day to let me know that he had found a way out of the morass. It was a brilliant solution. Mahoney and his assistant made a truly awful situation much easier to deal with because of the integrity which they brought to the work. They answered all my questions promptly. They never dropped the ball, and were always up to date on the issues when I called, which was no small feat, since the matter had many moving parts and extended over several years. Through it all, Mahoney offered truly wise counsel, making sure that my emotions did not get in the way of my interests. He also guided the case toward a conclusion that was far better than I ever hoped or imagined. I cannot recommend the firm more highly.”
