Other workers have an employment contract, which creates an exception to the at-will employment doctrine. Employment contracts outline the different details of the employment relationship and the rights and responsibilities of each party. If you have been asked to sign an employment contract or a severance agreement, or want to negotiate a new one with your employer, our Lancaster contract review lawyers can help.

Severance agreements cannot include a provision prohibiting employees from reporting complaints to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. However, they can prohibit employees from receiving any financial compensation as a result of the complaint.
