Employee Severance and Physician Contract Attorney Based In Birmingham, AL

Are you facing a severance agreement or an employment contract for a new opportunity?

Employment relationships are complicated. They may include non-competes, non-disclosure and non-solicitation previsions. Often overlooked when they are signed, departing employees are often surprised by their terms and enforcement under state laws. Upon separation, departing employees are often presented a severance agreement with a monetary benefit in exchange for contractual employee obligations, including a promise not to sue. At Stastny Law Firm LLC, we advise employees and executives, including licensed health professionals navigate employee engagement and separation by explaining your existing employment rights and the legal implications of employment and severance agreements.  Read below for more information about  Steve Stastny and his experience in employment law.
