I was given a letter of understanding when I started employment stating the terms and benefits. Those terms were not met. I was terminated from the job and offered severance at a extremely reduced amount. Does the letter of understanding imply an enforceable intent and would it be binding by law in Florida. Should I hire legal counsel?
Generally speaking, a Letter of Understanding may be enforceable against a former employer. However, I would need to review the letter as well as any other documents you may have related to your employment, such as an Employee Handbook, before I could determine if your employer violated the terms of an agreement. If your employer violated any of the terms of an employment agreement, you may have a case against your employer. I would definitely recommend you meet with me to discuss your situation further.
