Breech of job-contract and lawsuit

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with this? Someone we know got fired despite a 1-2 year contract half year after the agreement. Former boss informed them that the agreed upon bonus after one year (commission-style which had already been reached) would not be paid as well. What are the chances of winning a lawsuit, do you think, and what kind of lawyer does this fall under? They would lvoe to sue, but don't want to be out a ton of money meanwhile.


Thanks for any insights you might have.

They would be well served to seek counsel. They may be able to talk to an attorney and see if they have a case or not. It would really depend on the specific wording of the contract, the type of contract, the laws of the particular state, and what the 'fire-able' offence was.


But be warned....

My sister has been in a clear cut, unjustified dismissal, (even got physically pushed by a boss) and it has been 3 years, 3 attorneys and thousands of dollars on her part. They are no where near court, even now.
