In most cases, employees will have some documentation of their employment relationship with an employer. That may include an offer letter, or it may even include a formal-type written employment agreement. And my job as an attorney is to assess the client's legal rights under these contracts, whether they be an offer letter or employment agreement or other contracts or agreements entered into between the employer and employee. In handling these cases, I identify the employee's legal rights under these employment agreements and whether the employer breached the contract by terminating the employee early or for some cause not justified under the employment contract. I've had many cases with employment contracts where employees were prematurely discharged from employment by an employer in violation of that employment contract. Those claims may include claims for unpaid compensation for the balance of the contract whereas a term contract that the employer did not fulfill, for lack of good cause that's specified in the contract. There are other cases where the employer may agree to pay a stipulated amount of severance pay if the employee is terminated for no good reason and that may be a source of a dispute between employer and employee. Those are the type of issues I have litigated on behalf of employees.
