Mcallen, TX asked in Business Law, Contracts and Employment Law for Nevada

Q: Looking for help for breach of contract

I have worked as a remote independent contractor recruiter working in Texas for a staffing agency located in Las Vegas, Nevada. My compensation was not paid completely as agreed in the contract and the agency made me work other job that was not described in the contract. I was told by my other legal consultations that it is a breach of contract. Also, the agency wrongfully terminated me by terminating me without my resignation notice as stated in the contract. Im looking for help to represent me please as I do not have financial means at this time as Im unemployed at this time, if this could be a contingency please or any other low cost means. Please help Atty.

A: Sometimes these contracts have a clause that determines the state in which an action may be brought for a breach. I would review your contract and see which state you would need to bring action in, then start reaching out to employment law attorneys in that state for a consultation and to discuss options. Good luck.
