Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be helping you resolve your matter.

Please remember there may be a delay as I may be helping other customers.

What kind of contract is it?

Is there a spot on each page to be initialed?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It is an employee agreement and no, there are no given places to initial the middle pages, but I believe my employer may have changed the middle pages.
Expert:  GeorgetownLawyr replied 6 years ago.
oh, I see. Well there is no requirement that each page be initialed, typically that is done to prevent what you are seeing now and that is for someone to change the middle pages. As long as the signature page is signed it's held to be a legally executed document. If you feel pages have been changed, you should get a copy of the contract and dispute the changes now and try to get the original contract re-signed and initial each page.
