Fiduciaries are individuals empowered to act or manage assets on behalf of other parties, and in Kansas and other jurisdictions, their behaviors are governed by explicit laws. Even if a fiduciary does not take an illegal action on their own, they can still be deemed liable for transgressions committed by other fiduciaries with whom they share joint responsibility for assets or properties.
Kansas contracts exist for the protection of the involved parties. In the case of construction, this is particularly important because of the additional safety issues a potential contract violation may cause. Generally, contract law addresses a number of possible scenarios in which one party may fail in their duty to others, including financial, safety and workmanship matters, and prescribes what relief the parties to the contract may seek.
Contract law is one of the fundamental backbones of modern society. It allows for reliable dealings between the parties to an agreement and provides remedies in case of a breach. A Kansas business owner may be entitled to recover damages, demand specific performance or cancel the contract and seek restitution if another party fails to perform.
If an employee or job applicant believes that his or her civil rights were violated, that employee or applicant may have recourse. The first step in the process is to determine if a protected right was violated. If an individual is confident that an employer has done something wrong, it may be worthwhile to engage in informal negotiations with the employer.
