Breach of Contract, Negotiation, & Understanding Contractual terms
Employers must draft fair, nondiscriminatory and legally enforceable employment contracts, severance terms, and settlement agreements in order to obtain the desired result of limiting exposure to lawsuits later down the road. Even when there is a seemingly clear employment contract is in place, disagreements and breaches of contracts may occur. Sometimes, the parties cannot resolve the matter themselves, and they need legal assistance or even need to enforce the contract through mediation, arbitration, or in court.
Most contracts need to be in writing. For instance, both employment contracts must be in writing, must be signed by the employee, must be supported by adequate consideration (i.e., money), and should be easy to read without confusing legal jargon. Such agreements are generally drafted by a business’s attorneys and are one-sided, favoring the employer. Meanwhile, the employee is taken advantage of, signs away all of their legal rights, or simply does not get the best deal possible because they did not have their own legal representation.
