EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR CONNECTICUT BUSINESSES
We represent businesses in a range of employment matters, including lawsuits, transactional matters, and general counseling services. We handle transactional matters, including review and drafting of executive contracts, non-disclosure agreements, assignment agreements, bonus and compensation contracts, and employee handbooks. We handle lawsuits ranging from wrongful termination to complex claims for stolen trade secrets and client lists. For example, Aeton Law Partners recently represented a client in settling claims for over one million dollars against various departing executive employees following their planned out and complicated theft and misuse of confidential information for purposes of competing businesses. We leveraged our use and knowledge of technology in these matters to digitally reconstruct the thefts and misuse of electronically stored information. This included the recovery of over 25 years of proprietary information and data from a hidden hard drive that was stolen from our client. To help prosecute these matters, we worked with experts in accounting, lost profits, damages, computer forensics, and forensic accounting.
REPRESENTATION OF EMPLOYEES – EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS
At Aeton, we represent employees in reviewing and negotiating contracts, including severance agreements, general claims releases, executive contracts, physician agreements, and partner contracts. We review severance agreements, commission and bonus plans, and retention packages for a flat fee where applicable. We provide our objective advice to employees who seek to get increased severance pay, stock options, change in control payments, or retention bonuses. We cannot promise any particular outcome in a negotiated matter, but our past history typically has resulted in better deals for our clients both financially and in the terms and conditions of employment. Some of our cases involving review and negation include:
- Executive contract review and negotiation
- Directors and officers
- Indemnification clauses
- Physician employment contracts, physician non-competes, and partnership agreements.
- Change in control bonuses, stock options, and retention agreements.
- Relocation agreements, signing bonuses, and commission structures
- Professional service contracts, joint venture agreements, and independent contractor agreements
We also represent employees in lawsuits, mediation, and arbitration for breach of employment contract, failure to pay commissions, bonuses, unpaid wages, and overtime claims.
