Many California contract disputes necessitate business litigation

When California employees and employers disagree regarding employment contracts, emotions may run high and issues may prove extremely difficult to resolve. In fact, such situations often lead to business litigation when those involved are unable to reach agreements without appropriate intervention. In another state, a contentious situation is ongoing although the final outcome remains to be seen.

The contract disagreement recently came to a climax when about 1,700 workers went on strike. The workers are from more than 125 dealerships in the area. The massive work strike ensued after an agreed upon deadline came and went without a solution to the problem.

The auto mechanics involved in the current contract dispute say the offer management made was inadequate, causing them to trade in their tools for picket signs. One of the men said he's especially concerned with the way the younger employees are being treated. The man said he and those who entered the company back when he did achieved journeymen statuses after two years, but the younger workers nowadays are not eligible for the status until they've worked eight years.

The mechanics also say they want a guaranteed 40-hour work week and better wages for their apprentice workers. When these types of situations wind up in business litigation in California, successful outcomes often hinge upon experienced and aggressive representation in court. A business and commercial law attorney would protect a client's best interests and seek swift and agreeable solutions to any contract-related problems; in fact, sometimes, having an attorney by one's side enables dispute resolution to succeed without ever stepping foot in a courtroom.
