Updated May 01, 2020

Take control of your career. Read your contract and ask questions.

Sanjay is the union rep for Cutting Edge employees. He is not happy about their employment contracts or the new “at will” conditions announced by Carol and Marcus. Some of the staff are shocked when they receive their latest “contracts” and learn they are only for a week at a time. Sanjay stresses the importance of reading a contract carefully and being familiar with the terminology before signing anything. Carol is unimpressed, pointing out there are always others looking for a job. Sam does a practice contract negotiation with Casey who gives in to all his demands.
