I am pursuing legal action against my employer for breach of contract. I need a form to write a letter of intent to sue.
If you feel you have a claim, here are the steps you should consider taking:
A few general comments. Document everything. Read and understand everything. There are so many potential pitfalls and technical issues that you really need to involve an employment law expert from the beginning to guide you. You save money and get a more amicable result involving a lawyer behind the scenes (unless he or she advises otherwise) then doing it on your own (you had asked for a form!). No form (even if its the right one!) will substitute for the knowledge and ability to develop strategies that an expert can provide. Each phase should follow a progression - starting with the least antagonistic steps moving towards more antagonistic steps. This approach can minimize the escalation and hopefully resolve matters quicker. Also note that we suggested that you endeavor to solve the issues reasonably (that doesn't mean getting all you want!). Reasonable is better than victory. If you're looking for payback the payback might end up with the lawyers. If you're looking for a reasonable settlement, even if less than what you want, you may end up much better off.
And finally, if you work for us, you don't want to do any of the above. Take a walk around the block and realize what a fun place we have to work in (had to add this in just in case you're at the compute next door).
