Employment Lawyers in Stamford, Connecticut Employment Contract Negotiations and Disputes Employment contracts cover a variety of employment terms. Often, contracts control when an employee can be terminated and whether or not he or she is entitled to severance. Sometimes a contract gives an employee a right to resign with severance.

Obvious and Vague Employment Contracts Sometimes employment contracts are obvious, such as when the employee and the employer negotiate the terms of employment in advance. Other times the existence of contracts is less obvious, such as when an employer has contractual provisions in a stock option grant or in an employment manual. Some issues are extremely subtle, such as when an employer makes oral promises to an employee. Attorney Victoria de Toledo was president of the Connecticut Employment Lawyers Association for more than a decade and has lectured throughout her career on employment law issues. She has developed a specialty interest in executive employment contracts and employment discrimination litigation. Ms. de Toledo has successfully assisted many clients in protecting their rights in many types of employment contracts. Severance Agreements The termination of executive employment generally involves severance packages from an employer in exchange for a promise not to file claims against them. These packages consist of severance agreements detailing legal concerns and financial concessions that often do not have the employee’s best interests in mind. We offer knowledgeable assistance in reviewing your severance agreement in order to protect your rights before, during, and after employment. Employment Benefit Claims Employees also have legal protection when an employer fails to provide them with the appropriate pension, health, severance or other benefit provided to other employees. The law protects employees who have lost their jobs because their employer felt their benefits were costing too much money. If you feel that you have a claim for employment benefits, contact us.
