Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
What you describe is governed by contract law. Contract law is not complex...they teach it first year, first semester in law school. In order to have a valid contract you need 3 things
1. An offer by one person to do or refrain from doing some thing.
2. Acceptance by the other party of the offer...that is the other party must agree to the offer made.
3. Consideration. There must be an agreement to exchange something of value (like money or time) for the contract to be valid.Here, if you had an agreement with this company on compensation and you met your end of the deal? You can demand they fulfill theirs. If they do not you can sue them for breach of contractPlease let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
