Employee Contract Dispute Considerations

If you own or manage a company, you likely know that it is very important to take care when drafting employment contracts. After all, employees are the lifeblood of any business operation. If expectations, responsibilities, and consequences are not laid out clearly in contractual terms, businesses can suffer, employees can suffer, and negative impacts from contract disputes can negatively color a company’s work culture. As a result, it is critically important to be as proactive as you can be when constructing, executing, and enforcing the terms of employment contracts. With that said, if an employment contract dispute has already arisen, it is time to connect with a lawyer in order to minimize any potentially negative consequences that may result from this situation.

Conversely, if you are an employee, you may not have been given a great deal of education about how important it is to understand your rights, responsibilities, and expectations as laid out in your employment contract(s). Unless you majored in law or business, it may have not occurred to you to read over your employment contract or to have an attorney review it before you signed it. This is completely understandable as the subject of employment contract review is rarely taught in American schools and is almost never discussed in American culture. As a result, if you are navigating an employment contract dispute issue, connect with an attorney right away to discuss your rights and options under the law.

As an experienced employment litigation lawyer – including those who practice at Eric Siegel Law – can confirm, employment contract disputes can be potentially costly, time-intensive, and stressful if not addressed as promptly and effectively as possible. When preparing for a risk-free consultation with an employment litigation lawyer, you’ll want to keep in mind that if your dispute cannot be resolved out of court, you may need to navigate the ins and outs of a lawsuit. Keeping a list of questions about your rights, options, and the potential litigation process handy can help to ensure that you leave your consultation informed enough to make strong choices about your next steps.

Some contract disputes are worth fighting, as failing to do so could cost you dearly. On the other hand, some disputes are not worth pursuing because the costs associated with fighting outweigh the potential benefits associated with a win. You’ll want to think carefully about your needs, goals, and priorities before committing to a course of action accordingly.

Client Testimonials

As a disabled claimant, I can’t thank Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy enough for guiding me through these past fourteen years. No one else wanted my Workers’ Compensation case. No one! It was complicated. There were a lot of issues that made things difficult. They stuck with it well over a decade with preparedness, intelligence and grace. Mister Melvyn, he’s a good guy. Cathy, she’s so amazing.

I became a client of the Hurwitz firm in May of 1997 due to injuries I received while I was a meat cutter at I. Isenberg Meats in Buffalo, New York. Since my first encounter with your firm and up until the present day, I have been entirely satisfied with the way your firm has treated me.
