New York is an employee at-will state. However, many employers also have employees that are contracted to perform their work. For example, a doctor may be offered a contract to perform certain services for a medical clinic. An electrician or plumber may be hired by a large development company as an employee or independent contractor in order to complete work on a building. A real estate agent or salesperson may have an employment contract that entitles them to commission based on their sales. If an employer breaches an employee contract; or even a contract with an independent contractor, you may be able to take against action the employer for any damages that arise as a result of their breach. The type of action you are able to take will usually be designated it the contract. For example, you may have to bring your action in a particular state, or you may have to file for an arbitration. Either way, our attorneys are experienced in handling such contract cases and you should contact us today to see whether you have a claim against your employer for breach of contract.
