Minnesota Contract & Employment Lawyers
The terms of a contract are important, which is why the contract exists in the first place. There are many types of contracts with most involving money. If the terms of the contract are violated in any way, then someone could be facing a monetary loss.
Our St. Paul employment lawyers are experienced in employment and contractual matters, making us a great asset in your case. We know the law and can handle very difficult cases.
Protecting Your Rights
Employment Law affords individuals rights and protections. For instance, employees are protected from such acts as:
- Wrongful termination
- Harassment (i.e. sexual)
- Unpaid wages (not paying for time worked or not paying overtime wages)
- Breach of employment agreement/contract
An employee relies on their job to make a living, which does give big business leverage against them. However, the law gives employees certain rights so that they are treated like they should be in the workplace. If they are not treated the way they should be, then the employee reserves the right to file a claim against their employer.
Usually when an employer violates an employment contract in any way, they violate both state and federal law. Minnesota has four employment laws, while the federal government has 13 laws.
Even when a business is small, they are not exempt from the laws. They are still subject to some laws, while they are excluded from others. Nonetheless, the exclusions are very few, so it is a must for small business owners to be knowledgeable in what they can or can’t do so they do not get into legal trouble and employees can be content on the job.
Guiding You Through Contract Matters
When there is another type of employment contract, such as that with a subcontractor, the terms may need to be negotiated or there may be a matter where the terms were violated. From the beginning, it is good to have a Twin Cities employment lawyer there with you so you can make sure the contract is sound. If a violation does happen, there are many times when the matter can be negotiated and the business relationship can continue. Other times, the violation may lead to litigation. In that case, aggressive and knowledgeable representation is needed in order to secure the best possible result. No matter which route the case takes, you will have a powerful advocate in your corner so that you can move on toward a productive future.
