If a New Jersey employee is performing poorly or causing problems in the workplace, the employer may want to let that individual go. However, if the employee in question has an employment contract, this may complicate matters because there may be legal protections that prevent a termination except in certain defined circumstances, which are often referred to as good cause.
Most of us do it. We wake up, grab a cup of coffee and then head out the door to work. We then work our shift and head home, with the process repeating again the next day. But what happens when going to work isn’t that simple? What if your employer makes changes to your contract without your approval, or alters something that is in your employment contract?
A 21-year-old New Jersey contract dispute has finally reached an end. A judge recently ruled that a real estate mogul from New Jersey had cheated his business partners out of revenue that they deserved from an apartment complex. The development contract involved a 764-unit apartment complex that the man and several members of his family had built as part of a deal with two business partners.

There are contracts between companies, contracts between a business and a customer, leases, and employee contracts, among others. These contracts define how a business should act under a wide array of business situations.
