What can I do to alter an employment contract I signed that had unusual post-termination terms?

I echo the sentiments of others. Take the employment contract and have it reviewed by a contract or employment attorney. Contracts must meet specific terms in order for them to be enforceable. Sometimes, there are requirements that go past the offer, acceptance, consideration, competency, and capacity. States can set their own laws related to what can and can’t be enforced in a contract.

A good contract or employment law attorney can review the contract and tell you whether it would be enforced in a court of law. If the matter went to court, the judge could strike unreasonable clauses (if necessary) and leave the rest of the contract in place.

Ultimately, it depends on what you’re saying is unusual post-termination terms and what the law in your state says about them.
