Our Employment Contract Attorneys in Toledo, Ohio Are Here to Protect Your Rights
Employment contracts contain a lot of information, from outlining compensation and benefits, expected job duties, how legal disputes between you and your employer will be handled, whether you are bound to a non-compete or non-solicitation agreement, and defining expectations of both parties.
Because of the different clauses included in a contract and the legal significance surrounding them, it can be prudent for you to consult with an experienced employment lawyer in Toledo Ohio before signing anything.
The knowledgeable and well-versed attorneys at The Friedmann Firm can review all aspects of your employment contract to ensure that you are protected and that the contract reflects your wishes. We also handle contract negotiation and can reach out to your employer to discuss terms.
If you are in a situation where you are dealing with allegations of violating a clause within your contract, such as a non-compete agreement, we can also review your contract/non-compete agreement and provide you with representation related to the enforceability of the said agreement.
Why Should I Have My Employment Contract Reviewed by a Toledo Employment Agreements Lawyer?

The terms in employment contracts can become complicated, and a lawyer can provide expert guidance during the review process and during negotiations.

Key Employment Contract Clauses to Review
An employment contract is a legally binding document that requires careful review. Some key employment contract clauses that may be included in your employment contract include:
- The term of employment (your dates of employment)
- Specific job duties and responsibilities
- The compensation you will receive, including salary, benefits, and potential stock options
- Descriptions of non-compete agreements or non-solicitation agreements
- Termination and an explanation of how each party can terminate the employment
- Arbitration clauses and other venues for legal disputes
- Benefits like health insurance, family leave, vacation time, and PTO
- Confidentiality and trade secret provisions
- Clauses related to work products, patents, or intellectual property that may be created during your employment
This is a non-exhaustive list of contract clauses that you will want to review – no matter the industry you are working in or the level of your position.
An employment contract review lawyer will ensure that all the terms and conditions included in your employment contract are both beneficial to you and legally sound. It is important to know exactly what is included in your employment contract before you sign.
We are also able to negotiate for better terms to be included. These changes must be made prior to you signing the contract.
Common Employment Contract Violations
Understanding your employment contract is important, and so is having a general idea of some common employment contract violations that occur when either the employee or employer fails to uphold what the contract dictates.
Some employment contract breaches include:
- An employer paying less than what was agreed to or not at all
- An employer does not provide promised benefits
- An employer does not follow termination guidelines
- An employee does not carry out the job duties they agreed to perform
- An employee discloses confidential information covered by an NDA
When it comes to employment contract violations, either party can claim that the other is in breach.
Taking your concerns about potential contract violations to an executive employment contract lawyer is recommended. We will evaluate your case and guide you through the next steps.

Rachel Friedmann of the Friedman Firm was my attorney for a very recent legal matter. I would highly recommend Rachel based on her legal knowledge, her honest appraisal of the matter and expected outcomes, her open communication and timely responses to my questions and the matter itself, and her steadfastness in dealing with the opposing counsel until a final agreement was reached.
Rachel and her staff went over and above the call of duty to help me achieve fiscal resolution to my legal issue. She wasn’t always available to talk but was always responsive via text and email when in court out of the office and even on vacation. I feel she earned her percentage cut.
Couldn’t be happier with the representation I received from Jamie Bailey on my civil litigation case. She worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in the end negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for everything Friedman law firm.

The Friedmann Firm (specifically Pete Friedmann) represented me through what seemed like a never ending employment discrimination suit. The suit was filed just before Covid shut everything down in 2020. Add to that a former employer who refused to admit fault. In spite of all of that, Pete stood resolute in his representation of me and working for the best outcome for me. We ended up settling prior to trial and I was more than satisfied with the results. Pete was always available to answer questions and reassure me throughout this process. I highly recommend The Friedmann Firm!
Pete Friedmann and his firm are fantastic. He represented me for more than a year going through a suit with a previous employer. He walked me through every step of the process and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. My settlement came in and we parted ways with both sides being pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend the Friedmann firm and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future if the need arose. Thank you, Pete!

I loved working with The Friedmann Firm. Rachel and Jamie are exceptional lawyers and were diligent in reviewing my case and letting me know of my options. Jamie was extremely thorough and handled even the smallest details of my case with ease. The entire process was seamless and they were always quick to respond to emails and calls. I would definitely recommend working with The Friedmann Firm.
I would recommend Rachel Sabo Friedmann and the Friedmann firm for severance negotiations. Rachel was always available and responsive and made an effort to ensure I was updated on every step of the process. Her diligent efforts produced a prompt resolution and we are very happy with the results!
