We regularly work on behalf of executives in breach of contract cases in Missouri and Kansas. We are familiar with the unique issues that may arise in the context of contractual disputes and termination disputes involving upper-level managers and executives.
Unique Issues Presented by Executive Contracts
While most employment contracts are governed by the employment at-will doctrine, which enables employers to terminate employees for any reason or no reason at all — subject to antidiscrimination laws and other prohibited employer conduct — executive contracts often contain clauses that prohibit termination except for cause.
All too often, employers terminate executives without adequate cause. In some cases, an executive may clash with established corporate culture or may not live up to unrealistic expectations. The question, however, is if actual cause is present to justify an employment discharge. Cases involving the interpretation of complex contract language and the subjective expectations of employers are highly complex and should be handled by an experienced employment law attorney.
