Chicago, IL asked in Employment Law for Minnesota

Q: If I ask for a $15 raise and my employer would like me to sign a contract to commit for 2 years. What happens if I leave


I am nearing the end of my internship. The employer would like to offer me a permanent position at my current pay of $20/hr. I asked for $35/hr and my employer would like me to sign a contract committing to stay for 2 years. I would like to know if I agree and sign. And then leave before the 2 years will this contract be legally binding and what would happen if I lose in court?

A: More information is needed here, as the answer to your question will depend on the language in the contract your employer wants you to sign. You should consult a Minnesota contract attorney for a review of the specific terms in the proposed contract.
