Our blog post last week discussed employment contracts and how they can be crucial to protecting your rights as a worker. Additionally, we talked about how these agreements may be enforceable, even if they are not commemorated in writing. That being said, it is always best to have your employment contract written down and signed by both you and your employer. This is the best way to ensure that the terms of the agreement are upheld and any breach of the contract will give rise to liability.
But even a written contract may be deemed unenforceable. For example, if the agreements relate to illegality or if the terms of the contract are considered unconscionable, then a court may refuse to enforce those terms. In some instances, like when the agreement is reached through fraud or duress, the entire contract may be deemed invalid. Therefore, if you are entering into an employment agreement, there is a lot that you need to carefully consider before committing to signing.
First, you need to make sure you are getting a fair deal. It may seem daunting, but negotiating with your soon-to-be employer is a great way to ensure that you are getting what you deserve in return for what the employer is asking. Second, you’ll need to ensure that the contract is drafted in a way that is legally binding and enforceable. Failing to do this could give rise to the issues discussed above. Third, you need to monitor your contract to make sure you and your employer are in compliance. If you find that your employer has overstepped its bounds, then you may want to consider legal action to remedy the situation.
Perhaps the best way to approach these matters is to go at them with the assistance of a Florida employment law attorney. Skilled legal professionals, like those at Penichet Law, can help workers protect their legal rights and, in the event of wrongful termination, fight for the compensation to which they are entitled.
