Few of us are lawyers or have legal
expertise. So, one of the links in
the blogroll is a leading firm in the
job security and career success
area, Alan Sklover.
In a recent post on his blog, he
writes about significant subtleties in
contracts, he refers to as
“words of intention.”
While we hope that the hiring documents
you receive and are asked to sign are clear
and fair, legal language can make them
nuanced. He lists a number of “red flags”,
- ‘subject to …‘ phrases
- salary limiters
- bonus conditionals
- benefits limiters
- the word “MAY“
- words around termination.
He also speaks to remedies or what you
can do if you face legal red flags.
