Breach of Contract Defense in Tampa

Whenever employers hire new employees, they must ensure they provide employees with written contracts and documents that establish a legally binding relationship between both parties. A breach of contract occurs when one or both parties breaks the contract for any reason. This leads to a legal dispute which can affect an employer greatly if not handled properly.

Breaches of Contract

Poorly executed contracts lead to employee complaints which can result in financial difficulties for employers. Employees commonly submit complaints due to non-payment of wages, commissions, bonuses, or overtime pay; term and condition changes that were not originally agreed to by the employee; or employee handbook discrepancies.

Drafting Sound Contracts

Employment contracts and other employee-related documents should always be written and clearly communicate the terms and conditions of employment between both parties. The following are types of contract documents employers use to solidify their relationship with employees:

  • Employee handbooks
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Compensation Agreements
  • Non-Competition Contracts
  • Non-compete Provisions
