Restaurateur files lawsuit for breach of contract

To succeed in business, or any endeavor for that matter, an individual has to be smart and surround themselves with others who can help them reach the end goal. In the business context, working with others can be especially tricky, and not just because personalities and work styles may clash. For example, business partners and employees can act in certain ways that cause serious damage to a business, costing the business money. When a business relationship sours, it may be time to consider one's legal options, which can be reshaped by any sort of employment contract that may be in place.

FLSA and tipped employees

Many Californians work in positions where they receive tips. These workers primarily work in restaurants as servers. However, since these individuals receive tips as part of their wages, there may be issues about how this income should be treated. Fortunately, state and federal laws are pretty clear, and anyone who runs astray of those laws may find themselves in the middle of heated employment law litigation.

Employment contract breach? Consider legal help

Negotiating an employment contract may be one of the most important things you do in your career. The terms of your contract can specify your salary, hours, benefits, severance pay, the scope of your employment, and even the activities in which you engage after you leave the job. If you fail to aggressively and fairly negotiate your position on these matters, then you could be taken advantage of by your employer. Additionally, when you think your employer is in breach of contract, then you need to be prepared to take legal action to protect your best interests.
