Can I sue my employer for not notifying me that they don't plan on good faith negotiations for renewal per my contract?

Asked 12 months ago - Woodmere, NY

My contract says that my employer must notify me at any time during my 3 year contract term if they don't plan on engaging in good faith negotiations with me for renewal. I was made aware that behind my back, my employer has been in talks to assign my contract to another employer( through my contract's assignment clause) without notifying me. Can I sue them for breach of contract for not informing me of their plans to not notify me of their plans to not engage in good faith negotiations for renewal as the contract says they are required to do?

    Answered . If you never had an employment attorney review the contract before you signed, you should have it reviewed now and discuss your options with the lawyer. All legal documents should be shown to a lawyer before you sign it.
