For employment law matters, breach of contract cases can become a complex legal issue,
each breach of contract claim is unique. Many times the terms and conditions contained
within the contract are unclear, confusing, or are merely not being properly implemented
by the employer. Employers may also draft contracts that try to prevent an employee
from working in the same industry, or competing with their former company, after
being terminated. It is important to note that in the eyes of the courts, a contract
can be verbal or written.
If you believe you have an employment contract that has been broken, please contact
the Law Offices of Rutger Heymann, where I represent employees,and not employers.
Being dedicated to employment law, allows me to enjoy the challenge of the most difficult
legal issues, taking on the biggest corporations in the Bay Area, and protecting
the rights of my clients.
Breach of Employment Contracts
Employment contracts are an essential component to a person's employment; they can
provide peace of mind to an employee. A solid employment contract can address issues
I have assisted employees in resolving issues with their employers when disputes
over the terms and conditions of their contracts have arisen. I have also successfully
negotiated monetary and non-monetary settlements for clients.
Bay Area Employment Fraud
Fraud may include luring an employee from one job or city to another on false premises
regarding the new job. Such fraud claims may result in higher damages. Fraud may
also include misrepresentations about any term and condition of your job. Fraud is
a serious matter for which you should seek experienced legal counsel. Fraud is an
intentional deception, misrepresentation, or the promise of performance without any
intent to fulfill that promise. It can also be a statement that the employer knows
to be false with the intent of profiting by that deceptive act. Because each fraud
claim is unique, I spend a significant amount of time with each of my clients to
understand the details of each case so we may achieve the best possible resolution.
I use a straightforward approach, with the goal of reaching a satisfactory conclusion
to their legal problems.
You may have questions about your employment contract or the method that your employer
