Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Chicago Employment Attorneys

Our experienced Chicago employment attorneys & lawyers can help guide you on how to proceed with various employee decisions such as reviewing employee documents such as contracts, agreements, policies, and handbooks, along with difficult decisions such as firing, lawsuits, claims, and complaints.

Although not every single employment contract will require legal assistance, many employment lawyers would recommend avoiding unilateral employment contracts that strongly benefit one side over the other. These types of employee contracts rarely hold up in court, yet having the funds needed to combat an issue in court can limit the employee’s options.

A confidentiality agreement and a non-compete agreement are common forms of employee contracts that one of our Chicago employment attorneys can help customize for your business. If your business needs to fire an employee, proper measures should be taken from a business legal standpoint to ensure proper communication and a smooth transition of dismissing that employee. In any case, we suggest you connect with our employment attorneys to discuss your options.
