Why You May Need An Employment Contract Disputes Attorney
For most employees, their employer has the right to terminate them “at will,” meaning they can be let go for a certain reason or no reason at all. However, some situations have employees and employers entering into an employment contract. Along with spelling out each party’s duties and rights, it also contains clauses pertaining to how disputes will be resolved. Yet many times additional legal measures may need to be taken, which is when we suggest hiring an employment contract disputes attorney from the Gabroy Law Offices.
Common Employment Contract Disputes
While there are many areas where disputes may arise between an employee and employer, we have found some to be more common than others, including:
- Compensation and Benefits
- Sick Leave and Vacation
- Confidentiality Agreements
- Exclusive Employment
Whenever situations arise, there are naturally two sides to the story. Since both the employee and employer will each feel they are right, the incident in question may not be able to be resolved without legal intervention. When facing such a situation, we believe it is best to consult with employment contract disputes attorneys at the Gabroy Law Offices.
How are These Disputes Remedied?
Since most of the time neither party is willing to give much in terms of what they will or will not accept as a settlement, two options are often used in resolving employment contract disputes. Along with litigation that ultimately has the case heard in court, many employment contracts also allow for arbitration between both parties. In some instances, an employee may try to file a lawsuit for a matter that is covered by arbitration under the terms of the contract. When this happens, an employer may try to block this move by stating the contract has a mandatory arbitration clause. Rather than let this happen, contact experienced attorneys at the Gabroy Law Offices for assistance.
Due to the various complexities involved in employment contract disputes, don’t leave anything to chance by working with attorneys who do not handle these cases on a daily basis. Instead, contact the Gabroy Law Offices. Once you do, we will put our knowledge and experience to work for you and your case.
