If your future or current employer wants you to sign an employment agreement, you should have it reviewed by an attorney. After all, it is almost certain that the employer hired an attorney to write and/or review the contract. Oftentimes terms that appear fair are actually biased in favor of the employer. It can be invaluable for you to have someone with experience carefully review all of the terms of your potential employment agreement.
Because contracts dictate not just salaries and terms of employment, but can also include restrictions on employees long after the employee leaves the company, signing a bad employment agreement can be a professionally catastrophic mistake.
