Detroit Breach of Employment Contract Lawyers

Contract law, especially when it pertains to an employment contract, can be complicated – if you don’t understand all the fine points and fine print, you can find yourself in trouble.

When you sign a contract, you expect the terms and agreements of that contract to be fulfilled. But sometimes the other party doesn’t do what they promise, leaving you vulnerable. That’s when you need a lawyer at Sommers Schwartz.

Different Types of Employment Contracts

Sommers Schwartz has experienced and knowledgeable employment lawyers who have handled a wide variety of negotiations and disputes involving:

  • Non-competition agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • New employment agreements
  • Employee benefit agreements (stock options, bonuses, etc.)
  • Sales commission agreements

We understand that entering into an employment contract is an important decision for both businesses and individuals, and it’s critical that those entering into such agreements completely understand the meaning of the terms and conditions to which they have agreed. When there is a contract – a written obligation between both parties – the rights and obligations of the company or the individual are usually spelled out. When one of those parties fails to honor the terms as laid out in that agreement, the contract is then said to have been breached.

Our Experienced Employment Attorneys Will Fight for You In and Out of Court

Consulting with an attorney familiar with contract law prior to signing an employment agreement may possibly prevent a future breach as well as costly and time-consuming litigation. If you’re contemplating or in the midst of negotiating an employment contract, you need to ensure your rights are properly protected by talking to a Sommers Schwartz employment lawyer.

Similarly, if you believe that a breach of an employment related contract has occurred, you have a limited amount of time to act in order to preserve your rights, and you need a Sommers Schwartz lawyer familiar with employment litigation to advise you on the most appropriate course of action. While many times such disputes end up in the courts, these matters can be resolved more quickly and efficiently by means of effective negotiation or alternative dispute resolution, while still achieving your goals.

Contact a Sommers Schwartz attorney today to confidentially discuss your case and learn how we can help.

You and your team handled everything so professionally and have been so personable and compassionate. In particular, your paralegal was wonderful to me, showed me and others such empathy, and made everything so smooth. I will be happy to recommend your firm to anyone who needs legal help.
