Helping You Navigate Employment Law

Protecting Your Interests In Your Employment Contract

Contract review is super important at the beginning, middle, and end of your employment. At Hurwitz Law PLLC in Ann Arbor, we offer consultation and representation to workers on a broad range of employment contract issues. We can help you understand what the contract means and what benefits you are entitled to.  Most importantly, we can counsel you on how to navigate dispute related to the interpretation or drafting of a contract.  While Michigan follows the “four corners” doctrine meaning that we first look to the contract language itself to resolve a dispute, there are many ways to leverage an employer to treat you fairly.

Types Of Guarantees Or Rights In An Employment Contract

No matter what the issue may be, we can help.  We have reviewed thousands of employment contracts and help you reconcile all of the “legalese.”  You’re probably wondering what legal operation the terms of your contract have or how to add terms that protect your rights.  We will explain the answers to you in non-lawyer speak so that you can understand your rights fully.  You may have been promised sales commissions or bonuses, PTO or other benefits that your employer failed to deliver. Your employer may be offering you a severance package that does not seem adequate. It is also possible that you were wrongfully terminated or that you reported discrimination or harassment and are now subject to retaliation. We regularly assist employees with concerns that involve:

  • Contract breach
  • Noncompete or nonsolicitation agreements
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Pension issues
  • Failure to remit wages and severance packages
  • Wrongful termination and retaliation
