Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/30/2018 -- The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC is one of South Jersey's experienced employment law firms representing employees. The firm offers a comprehensive range of employment legal services. While the firm serves as workplace sexual harassment lawyers in South Jersey, it also handles a variety of other workplace legal matters, including disputes over non-compete and arbitration agreements.
Oftentimes, when a new employee signs on with a company, the employment contract he or she signs will include a non-compete agreement. This agreement restricts the employment opportunities for the worker for a certain amount of time should he or she part ways with the company. It is meant to protect the company and its intellectual property, so the employee cannot extract valuable company information and leave for a rival organization.
In many cases, the employment agreement may also contain an arbitration clause. This clause says that both parties agree to settle any disputes outside of the court system, through an agreed-upon third-party arbitrator. This system is intended to be impartial, but in many cases, it can be biased in favor of the employer. Arbitration provides the employer with secrecy, as arbitration hearings, unlike court cases, are not a matter of public record.
During the arbitration process, both parties and their legal counsel will meet to discuss the dispute and come to a resolution. It is imperative that any employee entering an arbitration hearing have an experienced attorney to support his or her position, as the getting an agreeable decision from the arbitrator is often the best and quickest chance for a successful result.
The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC not only serves as workplace disability discrimination lawyers in Gloucester County and the surrounding areas but also provides legal guidance for employees who are faced with non-compete agreements and arbitration agreements. Contact the firm today at 800-406-8013 to discuss any employment dispute.
