Employment Contract Legal Guidance

It is important to carefully draft any and all employment contracts in order to avoid unintentional contract breaches and unnecessary complications.

Considerations And Damages In Employment Contract Breaches

A proper employment contract will describe everything that can and should be considered between an employee and employer relationship. Important aspects include compensation, pay, benefits and expectations. However, any portion or clause within an employment contract can become problematic when it is not followed, either intentionally or unintentionally.

Damages to consider in civil litigation originating from an employment contract include:

  • Wages lost due to unjust removal, reduction or reclamation of pay
  • Company funds lost due to fraudulent employee behavior
  • Finances lost through intentional employment contract breach
  • Reputation damage to employee or employer

Perhaps the worst form of damage that can arise due to a breach of an employment contract is that to reputation and professional standing. Individual employees could struggle to find gainful employment. Businesses may not be able to form new partnerships or close deal. Civil litigation seeks to rectify all of these problems through courtroom intervention and a monetary award, which has been intricately calculated based on real and circumstantial losses.
