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.

I’m so appreciative.

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.

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job and were very understanding of my sensitive situation.

You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me.

My husband and I had taken the advice of someone else over yours – only to later regret it. You got the results we wanted in three days after we wasted 7 weeks with someone else. You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me, and…

I will confidently recommend Sommers Schwartz.

You were on a short list of attorney’s I considered to represent me in this matter based on your standing in the legal community and I have no doubt that your reputation brought this matter to a resolution more expeditiously than a less highly regarded attorney would have been able to accomplish.

Mr. Watkins exceeded my expectations.

The settlement that Mr. Watkins achieved was beyond my expectations! Without hesitation, I would and have recommended him to my friends and family. He and the staff all have been extremely cooperative, informative, and professional.

They are an awesome team and I would recommend them and their firm to anyone.

I contacted Sommers Schwartz to join a class action suit. Kevin Stoops and his assistant Veronica Stewart took my case and walked me through all the documents that I had to sign, explained everything to me, and won my case!

You and your entire staff were very professional.

You were committed to customer satisfaction and it showed through your leadership. Your insightfulness, experience and performance, provided me with much support and confidence. Thank you!
