When you read the words 'breach of contract,' the first thing that comes to mind is probably the kind of contract that you sign when you buy a car, or when you agree to deliver a certain quantity of product. But the definition of the contract is much broader than that. In fact, whenever you agree to anything, you are effectively creating a contract, even if you don't sign a document.
Such unsigned contracts are difficult to enforce because they are near impossible to prove in a court of law. But there are many other signed contracts that result in disputes that few people ever realize are based on contract law. This article will examine one of the most prominent example as explained by Rick Dane Moore & Associates Law Firm, PLLC, a business litigation law firm in Norman.
Breach of Contract For Overtime Lawyers
Another contract arises when an employer and an employee start a working relationship. The worker agrees to work for the employer, and in exchange, the employer agrees to certain terms of payment. Very often, these terms include payment for overtime.
When the employer commits a breach of contract and doesn't pay for services rendered by the worker, the employee can go to an overtime lawyer for assistance. These lawyers specify in labor breach of contract, focusing on the rights of workers to overtime pay.
Overtime lawyers are frequently able to have success in court because pay statements are often written down and signed. There is usually an official process that the employee must go through before beginning work at a new job, and a good overtime lawyer takes advantage of that to prove that overtime pay is owed.
