Contract Review and Negotiation Services
An employment contract offers important protections to an employee. Without an employment contract, any employee is subject to termination without cause and without any guarantee of severance pay. The San Francisco employment lawyers at Rukin Hyland have helped many executives, professionals, and other employees negotiate favorable employment contracts and other agreements dealing with such issues as:
- Terms of hire and term of employment
- Change in Control and Severance Agreements outlining the pay and benefits an employee will be entitled to upon change in control, termination, or layoff
- Non-solicitation agreements and non-compete agreements
- Expat agreements
- Confidential information agreements and non-disclosure agreements
- Compensation agreements establishing salary, bonuses, incentive pay, and other benefits
- Health insurance, vacation time, dental and vision insurance, disability insurance, and other insurance benefits
- Retirement, stock options, and pension provisions

Why Choose Rukin Hyland
We approach each transaction with an eye toward developing a strategy that works best based on the client’s individual needs. In certain circumstances, we play a behind-the-scenes role, while at other times we are directly involved in negotiations with the employer’s counsel. Some disputes require a strong hand; others a soft touch. We bring to our practice the sophistication to know the difference and the skills to employ both effectively.
