I need a legal review or consultation ( no intentions to sue - there may not be a ground but I am not a lawyer) who can review my employment offer letter and provide me guidance. The guidance sought is around this one line which is ambiguous or vague. It doesnt provide me any information on what is the companys program although one is referred in the offer letter. I have already taken up the job and this month is my 1st year anniversary.
Expectaction: Flat fee attorney who will review the letter and draft a letter for me either on my letter head or on the attorneys office letter head. Expecting a super specialist / expert on employment law.Asker is W2 employee status. I had a meeting with my manager on salary review and Manager asked me to speak to the HR. I just dont want to speak but go prepared backed by Avvo power.
Good idea. Wrong place.
This is a Q&A board and unfortunately it is not a place where you can solicit attorney assistance other than answers to general legal questions. It would be inappropriate for an attorney to respond to your post with an agreement to work with you. Unfortunately, the job of locating and enlisting an attorney is yours. To achieve that end, I would suggest you look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Even though you have not asked, I would say that a broad statement in an offer letter that you will get "regular" salary reviews is not something you can likely enforce at this stage. Regular can mean many things. While it may be reasonable for you to expect it to be at least annual in nature, it can also be reasonably understood to mean on a longer basis. Your best approach may well be through friendly approach to your supervisor as opposed to an attorney letter, ghost-written or otherwise. Of course, this is the kind of thing you will want to discuss confidentially with the attorney you find and hire.
Good luck to you.
