A Familiar Breach of an Employment Contract
You spent nine months working on the biggest deal of your career and the commission was sorely needed. All that was left was that one final meeting where your boss and your client, the one you have been cultivating, the one you have been wining and dining, whose every email you have answered, would be putting pen to paper. You and your wife have already talked about how to spend that big commission check once it comes in.
Your boss tells you not to worry, he’ll handle the meeting. He knows how tired you are and suggests that you take the day off. You take him at his word and knock off for the day.
The following day, instead of the commission check, you find a pink slip on your desk. The deal went through, maybe with an inconsequential change or two, but you had been squeezed out. Your boss went around you, took over the deal, and now you are out in the cold with nothing.
That commission would have made your year. You know you have to take legal action, but every attorney in town wants a $10,000.00 retainer and $500.00 an hour, which you do not have. What can you do?
The contingent business litigation attorneys at Cutler Rader have successfully handled employment contract disputes for our clients throughout South Florida. We work on a contingency basis, meaning no fee unless and until we make a recovery for you. Our philosophy is that you lost once already, you should only pay after you win now.
