An executive employment agreement is a written document usually between an employer and a highly compensated executive. This agreement contains more expansive terms and conditions than a normal employment agreement.
What is a breach of Employment Agreement?
A breach of contract happens when either you or your employer does not follow either of the terms stated in the contract. For example, when you do not work for the hours that the agreement states or your employer does not pay your wages or provide tools for the task to be carried out.
In New York, if you breach a contract your employer should try to settle the matter informally but they can sue you for any damages. In case they use the court to settle down the issue, they will need to make an application and be accepted. The most common cases where employees breach their contract is when:
● You quit your job without notification
● You enter into a contract or go work for a competitor when your employer is against it
● Embezzlement or fraud against the corporate
● Failure or neglect to perform duties
● Also, withdrawal or turning down a job offer after accepting it- an agreement is drawn as soon as you accept a job offer
Often, employers terminate executives without adequate reasons or with no reason at all. In such cases, the executive may not be able to live up to unrealistic expectations or clash with the corporate culture. Such cases involve interpretation of complex contract terms and expectations of employees are high, hence you should find an experienced lawyer to handle such a case and advise you professionally.
An executive needs to retain an employment lawyer to negotiate on your behalf, with the corporate. They bargain for terms and conditions of the agreement to favor you so they do not unjustifiably dismiss the executive.
For those employees whose employment is coming to an end, or have resigned with a good cause like health issues, and need advice concerning post-employment they should seek legal advice. They are entitled to severance compensation. The lawyer will negotiate favorable separation terms for the client.
