Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Can you provide a few more facts to put this into context?
What would like to know
Was it a written contract, what were the terms, what were the reasons given for termination, etc.?
Were you working in a temp type situation?
It was a written contract and there were no reasons for termination
If it was a written contract of employment with a specific term of service, in your case it appears to be from 4/8/13 to 12/31/13, then you can sue for a breach of contract and recover the amounts still owed under the contract as well as your attorney's fees and costs.
They would be entitled to an offset for any amounts you actually earn during the remainder of the contract.
Can you suggest a lawyer in Rockford,IL Winnebago County
Unfortunately, we can't give referrals but if you go to www.lawyers.com you can search by location and area of practice. In this case the first choice should be civil trial law or civil litigation and the second choice employment law. Even though it involves employment it s really a breach of contract case.
Be sure and let them know it is a breach of written contract and not just an employment case. They are less likely to give you an appointment with an employment case than a breach of contract.
Anything else I can assist with? It seems to be a straightforward case.
