Do I ask for a raise?

Do I ask for a raise? My long-term contract is being renewed for the second time, and for the second time on the "same terms", i.e. no increase in my hourly rate. I'm torn between asking for a raise because "I should" - my role and responsibilities have expanded greatly over time - and accepting the offer because, well, I'm not going to leave over this and based on my cursory knowledge of similar positions elsewhere I'm still paid competitively. And I don't want to make a fuss. [more inside]

Laying the Golden Egg: Employer unilaterally shifting my contract.

I took a job which I initially really enjoyed and was doing well at in a small company, by far exceeding standard targets across a variety of measures. Shortly after my six month review, my employer has began to play loose with the terms of a pretty weak contract, and it's impairing my performance as I weigh whether I need to shift my own priorities. Is this symptomatic of problems ahead or just a lack of business sense that I can leverage myself sufficiently to deal with? What is my next move and how do I go about it? [more inside]

What are some common "win-win-style" tactics or phrases used during contract negotiation to get portions changed/removed? From time to time I need to write or talk about those issues without escalating any tensions. [more inside]

Are There Talent Agents For Video Clips?

I'm a John Q. American with a video clip that I have complete copyright authority to (including the music on it) and several UK companies have approached me about licensing the footage for television programs. Is there an agent for this kind of thing, and how would I know if they're credible? I know only minimal bits about contract negotiation..

Looking for mock negotiation scenarios.

I'm speaking to some students about negotiating contracts. I'm hoping to break them out into pairs for a mock negotiation, and am looking for a 5-10 minute mock negotiation to use. Any good resources out there? [more inside]

Returning to Work... Part-time

I'm currently on maternity leave from a job that I love. I had planned on returning to work once my leave was up, but I've now made the decision to stay home with my baby. However, I would still like to work for my current employer on a freelance basis. What's the best way to break the news to them that I'm not coming back while hopefully leaving the door open for future freelance/contract work? I don't want to burn any bridges.
