What happens when a contract is breached?

To understand the course of events that may unfold when a contract or agreement is breached, readers of this blog should have a solid understanding of how a contract is formed. For a contract to be created, at least two parties must agree to the contract's terms. One of the parties must offer to perform a service or provide a good and, in exchange, the other party must accept the offer and provide consideration for the offeror's goods or services.

When a business brings on a new hire, it is often looking for new energy and new human capital that will help the entity as a whole grow and become more competitive in its market.

One of those terms may be a confidentiality clause; this post will generally address what these clauses are and how they can cause issues in the employer-employee relationship.

Have an HR dispute? We can help.

It is not uncommon for a business to operate different departments that hold different responsibilities that are critical to the overall functioning of the organization.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees based on a number of protected classes.
