  • If I did not sign a contract am I still held to it by my employer in Wisconsin?

    My employer has a hefty contract she wanted everyone to sign and I have been working for her without signing it , but she also keeps changing it and not having us sign the changes (like whenever she feels like changing things). So does that mean I am bound to said contract? I think she doesn't realize I have not signed the contract.

    That depends on whether or not this is actually a contract, or whether it is company policy. You are not bound by a contract that you have not signed. However, you can and are held to follow company policy whether you sign anything saying so or not.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      If this could be construed as a valid, enforceable contract, then you should see a local attorney versed in contract law. If it is simply an employee handbook or collection of policies (which very rarely rise to the level of a contract), then the fact that you have not signed (for) it is most likely irrelvant.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
