Understanding Employment Contracts in St. Louis

As part of the hiring process, employees and independent contractors are often required to enter into employment contracts. These contracts can contain different types of information; some are simple, and some are complex. But, in general, the contract will outline important information that pertains to a worker’s job duties, their rate of pay, their benefits, and the term of employment.

By entering into the contract, you are agreeing to hold up your end of the bargain by performing pursuant to the terms of your deal. For example, an employer may attempt to argue that a worker did not perform their duties under the language of the agreement. On the other hand, an employer cannot terminate someone’s employment before the end of the contract’s term without good reason. Otherwise, the employee can demand compensation for the remaining value of the contract.

In the event of a dispute, our team could advocate for a worker’s rights and help demonstrate that they fulfilled their end of the bargain. Some examples of breach of contract disputes that you may experience include:

  • An employer’s failure to notify you of a contract’s accompanying policies, etc.;
  • An employer’s refusal to pay out bonuses or commissions;
  • Damages being sought for revealing trade secrets;
  • The enforcement of non-compete terms;
  • Refund of signing bonus;
  • Fraud;
  • Lost profits.
