Contract Violations

Our attorneys know the law, demand justice

Legally binding contracts serve as the backbone for many business ventures. This is especially true when it comes to contracts involving employers and employees. That’s why cases of wrongful termination involving violations of employment contracts can be so complicated.

If you or a loved one has been fired due to an alleged contract violation in West Virginia, it’s important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible about your potential legal case. That’s why we strongly urge you to contact our law firm right away.

The attorneys at Klie Law Offices have extensive experience handling such complex cases throughout West Virginia. We thoroughly understand how the legal system works here and we’re prepared to do the work that needs to be done to make things right.

Common contract violations

An alleged violation of the terms of a legally binding contract often results in an employee being fired. Common contract violations can include:

  • Sharing company trade secrets with a competing business
  • Refusing to do contractually obligated work
  • Performing outside work without permission
  • Not performing duties outlined in contract
  • Failure to work contractually obligated hours

There are many other types of contractual violations. And each one requires a different approach to resolve the situation. That’s why we’re eager to meet with you.

You have rights

Just because your employer claims you violated the terms of a contract does not mean you do not have any legal options. Don’t simply take their word for it. Talk to us. We can explain all the legal options available to you, then help you decide which one works best for you.

Sometimes, negotiating with your employer might turn out to be the best solution. Other times, filing a lawsuit against your employer for violating your rights might be a better alternative. Either way, we will be there with you every step of the way, protecting your rights.

You only have a limited amount of time to take legal action in such cases. Like many states, West Virginia has deadlines (known as statute of limitations) for how long someone can take legal action for a contract violation. So don’t delay. Schedule your free case evaluation today.
