You Agreed, But It's Not Reflected In Your Contract: What Now?

podcast Feb 16, 2023

Your negotiation went well.

You came to an agreement that reflects your worth, but then you get your contract and those stipulations are absent.

What steps can you take if the conversation and the contract end up being two different things?

This happens a lot more often than you think, and whether it’s a simple case of miscommunication or something far more concerning, you control what happens next.

How do we bring the issue up with our employers?

In this episode, I’m sharing what we can do when the things we agreed to aren’t spelled out in our final contracts.

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 

  • The next best thing to a contract stipulation
    If the contract doesn’t reflect what was agreed upon, can an email suffice?

  • Deal breaker or no deal breaker
    If it’s not reflected in the contract, how do we know it might be time to walk?

  • Innocent oversight vs. a targeted slight
    Mistakes can be made in our contracts, so how do we approach the issue with a benign sense of curiosity before we think the worst?
