Prior to the start of an executive’s employment relationship, the executive and the company usually negotiate an employment agreement. This agreement is usually created and negotiated by skilled attorneys. But an employer may later ask an executive to either sign an amended agreement or to enter into a separate agreement regarding a related matter (such as stock options or trade secrets) after the executive’s employment begins. If an executive blindly signs such agreements, the executive could be forfeiting the carefully negotiated benefits achieved during the initial negotiation process.
Employment law attorney Keith Clouse (http://dallasemploymentlawyer.cdklawyers.com) who routinely drafts employment agreements for executives, believes that an executive should immediately contact counsel if the executive is asked to sign an amended employment agreement or a separate agreement that could impact the terms of the executive’s employment agreement. An attorney can review any proposed agreement and ensure that the executive will not lose the protections and benefits contained in the original agreement.
