Minnesota Breach of Contract Attorney

Breach of Contract

In today’s employment environment more and more employers are entering into employment contracts with employees. Those contracts can include conditions of employment as well as ending employment terms. The law firm of Tarshish Cody PLC will help explain and counsel on the legal implications of employment contracts.

Written Contracts

Some written contracts include conditions for employee termination that involve fixed dates of employment, and a requirement to show good cause for termination, etc. Employment contracts can also involve job descriptions, severance, compensation and other elements that directly affect the employee. In the event an employer does not live up to these written specifications, an employee may have a claim for breach of contract.

An employee who receives an employee manual or handbook may have a form of employment contract. These handbooks should be reviewed and understood in every detail. Employees should be aware that any signed document associated with employment can constitute a contract with obligations required by the employee.

Union Contracts

Employees that join unions typically are covered by a union contract for employment.  These collective bargaining agreements often require specific reasons for termination based on just cause. Often these “just cause” conditions involve alleged employee violation of company rules. If an employee is fired based on violations of company rules, if the termination is not clearly based on the company rules referenced, the employee may have a breach of contract claim against the employer. Also, an employee may have a legal claim if the company is not honoring its union contract in terms of compensation, vacation, or denial of other employee benefits. Call Tarshish Cody PLC for a free initial consultation to discuss your specific circumstances at 952-856-0003.

Implied or Verbal Contracts

When an employer makes a verbal commitment and then fails to honor that oral commitment, this can be an instance of a breach of contract. Our law firm can assist in assembling documentation in support of breach of oral commitments by an employer through evidence involving emails, witnesses, phone calls, documents, etc. Keep in mind that an employer’s policies, practices, and statements can be legally binding. Employees can use the legal system to enforce a claim against an employer whose failure to consistently follow verbal employee commitments leads to harm for the employee.

We welcome your call today at 952-361-5556 (or fill out the free case evaluation form below) to help you through the legal issues of your breach of contract case.
