Employment Lawyers Assisting Clients with Breach of Contract Claims
Disputes over employment contracts typically arise when an employer or employee fails to understand their rights and obligations under the terms of an employment contract. In most cases, what is at issue is the enforceability of a contract, its reasonableness, and whether due consideration has been offered in exchange for signing it. In this regard, when an employer asks an employee to sign an employment contract, it is incumbent upon the employer to make sure the contract is enforceable and due consideration has been offered. Alternatively, when an employee signs an employment contract, he or she should be aware of the obligations and expectations set by the contract. At Shellist|Lazarz|Slobin, our employment law attorneys assist clients in understanding their legal rights and obligations under an employment contract. When a breach occurs, we evaluate the contract in question and determine what your legal options are.

Breach of Contract, Enforceability, and Reasonableness
The enforceability and reasonableness of an employment contract will determine whether or not it will hold up in court. If, for instance, a non-compete agreement is too large in its geographical reach or involves an unreasonable length of time, it will not hold up in court. Likewise, if an employee is asked to sign a non-compete after he or she has already been working at a company, due consideration should be offered in the form of increased pay or other compensation. Failure to provide due consideration in these circumstances may undermine an employer's attempt to enforce a non-compete later.
