In Minnesota, oftentimes law firms will take on employer-employee disputes because the statute will pay for the attorney’s fees. Lawyers that deal with employment issues and treat the case as a paycheck rather than a business decision will file the case assuming the employer will eventually be forced to pay, therefore receiving money from the case. An employer-employee dispute can be a costly and prolonged process if not handled by experienced attorneys. At MNCLS, we care more about the contractor’s business than any personal reward.
A contract is not required for a typical employee, referred to as an employee at will. Instead, you need to have the proper documents and policies in place for employees, such as an employee handbook. If the employee is considered an employee with a contract, then a formal contract is required which includes additional steps and documentation.
