The lawyers at KBA Attorneys take cases frequently involving employment law. We are familiar with all types of contracts; union agreements, employer/employee agreements. We have handled many cases involving protected concerted activity (when two or more staff members dispute the scale of pay they receive or bonuses they get or don’t get).
Workplace lawsuits happen in Maryland more often than people think, and legal cases vary. All someone needs to do is look at the National Labor Relations Board listed cases, and he or she will see the number is high, and there are many diverse situations regarding labor laws.
Contract Breaches/Disputes Examples
According to the “at-will employment doctrine”, an employee can leave his or her job at any time, for any reason (besides a reason that would violate anti-discrimination laws/regulations). Also, under the “at-will employment doctrine”, the staff member does not need to have “good cause” to leave the job.
Our attorneys have years of experience and diligently work to help clients get the quickest and best resolutions. In some instances, a case does not have to reach the courtroom and can be negotiated and resolved before it goes that far.
Employee Handbook Case Example
Most employers hand out employee handbooks to each new staff member. The handbooks are often viewed as contracts between the boss and the staff member. They are a form of contract. One part of the book might include what happens when a worker is terminated; he or she would receive severance pay, for example. When an individual is terminated and does not receive the promised compensation, he or she might have a legal case. If you are in that situation, our workplace lawyers might be able to file a claim in court for “breach of contract” for you and get you the pay you deserve.
If you are involved in a workplace lawsuit (or believe one might occur), you might want to consult attorneys who are proficient and well-educated in labor laws. There are laws and regulations for all employers. Our lawyers handle these kinds of legal cases daily and are familiar with the Department of Labor and all licensing and regulation laws/rules.
