Breach of Contract
Kitzer Rochel handles many different types of breach of contract claims on behalf of employees. Breach of contract claims can take many different forms in the employment context. You may be subject to an employment contract that governs your compensation, commission structure or bonus plan; or, you may have an employment contract that protects you from termination that is not “for cause.”
In addition, employees who may have a breach of contract claim frequently also have additional employment claims, such as retaliation, whistleblower, qui tam, or even discrimination claims. In fact, under the 2013 amendments to the Minnesota Whistleblower Act (“MWA”), if you report to your employer a breach of contract, you are protected from retaliation for making that report. This means that an employer cannot terminate or penalize an employee for reporting breaches or violations of contracts.
