Employment contracts and other employment-related contracts are an important part of the employment process and are usually offered to a person being offered a high level executive position or to a person bringing a benefit to the company. These legal documents and legal contracts establish the relationship between an employer and an employee. An employment agreement is most effective when the rights and obligations of both parties are clearly established. If there is an employment agreement, and if that agreement is breached, the employee (or employer) has a right to sue under the contract. We at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC can help with Tucson employment agreements and more.
In most cases, and in all states, if there is no employment agreement between an employee and the employer, then the employee was hired “at will,” and that employee can be terminated at any time the employer chooses, with little to no opportunity for the employee to sue for damages, unless a federal or state law was violated. Also, if the person is terminated with cause, he or she may not be able to seek unemployment benefits.
