Q: How Do You Know if a Breach of Contract Lawsuit Is Unenforceable?
A:There are many ways that contracts can trap an employee. Companies hire people to write contracts that put so many layers of legal jargon that it can seem like there’s no way out for an employee without facing prosecution. But if you find yourself worrying about how a contract you’ve signed can affect you, there are some things you should know first. Contracts, and the lawsuits that can follow them, are not always as airtight as they seem.
A New York breach of contract lawsuit is just as much putting the company on trial as it is the employee. Before a judge or court can rule against you for a breach, the company has to prove to the court that it has followed through with all of the aspects of the contract that it agreed to as well. If it turns out that the company has failed to meet any of its obligations, there shouldn’t be much of a case. And there may be a way out for you—even if you have admitted to a breach of contract!
A contract can be written in confusing ways that make employees feel like there’s no way out for them. If an employee finds himself in a situation where it seems like there’s no hope, it can be a very daunting experience.
