Breaches Of Contract Call For Top Legal Representation
Employers and employees are often protected by written employment contracts. In employment arrangements involving top executives or key employees, an employment agreement is almost always a necessity. However, when the employer-employee relationship ends, the conditions of the employment contract should be upheld — by both parties, not just the employee.
No Contract Dispute Is Too Complex For Our Firm To Handle
At the Garden City, New York, law office of Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., we represent employees in contract disputes arising from broken employment agreements. Our extensive knowledge of employment law allows us to help our clients make informed decisions. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation if you have an employment contract dispute you would like to discuss with one of our experienced attorneys.
A solid employment contract can address issues involving compensation, noncompete clauses, severance pay, severance terms and other important provisions. Typically, an employment agreement will set forth a procedure for termination of the employment — by either the employer or the employee. However, if the employer does not follow the procedure, such as providing proper notice, there may be cause for an improper termination claim.
Most contract dispute remedies involve enforcement (or injunction) and financial compensation. The same is true for most employment contract disputes. Our lawyers assist employees in enforcing their rights under an employment contract and in pursuing compensation for damages suffered as a result of a breached employment agreement:
- Differential pay
- Interval wages lost (until a new job is obtained)
- Severance pay
- Other damages
