The good news is that the television station has offered you the job. The next step iTiny Exaviers signing your contract. We were fortunate to have attorney Exavier Pope, Principal Owner of The Pope Law Firm, P.C., conduct the latest NABJ members-only webinar. During the event, Pope, who is also the host of #SuitUP Podcast and treasurer of the NABJ Sports Task Force, offered great advice to members on six key things to consider before putting pen to paper. 

 

  1. Length of a Contract
  2. List of Job Functions
  3. Compensation
  4. Morals Clause
  5. Non-compete Clauses
  6. Termination

You can listen to a recording of the webinar here.  Contact Exavier Pope via email, on his website or via Twitter.  And below are more resources for dealing with contracts.
