Contracts are a very important part of many Florida business agreements between employers and employees. These agreements can keep expectation clear about what each side will provide and receive. Contracts often have expiration dates, and when it is time to configure new agreements, disputes can arise as to what would be fair for both sides. If one party feels that they are not being treated justly, they may want to consider their legal options.
In another state, workers at grocery store chain Kroger are currently petitioning for changes in their contract. It was reported that the workers apparently had not received raises in over a year, and they are looking for fairer terms to their employment agreements. Parties have been working to collect signatures from customers who frequent the store.
A strike from union workers could potentially be on the horizon if the dispute does not come to an end. A meeting to go over the possible terms of the agreement has been set for the near future. A representative for the union stated that they just wanted what was fair for the workers and that the customers also hoped for the same.
Contract disputes can become very complicated as every detail can have considerable impacts on the parties involved. Therefore, Florida workers who find themselves facing contract discussions may want to ensure that they understand the implications of agreement terms. Information on how these contracts are formed and the legal effects they can have may be helpful to parties who do not want to be taken advantage of.
