If a current or former employee or worker is violating your contractual rights, a cease and desist letter is often the first step in protecting your interests through employment litigation. Some common situations that call for a strong cease and desist letter include:
- A former employee is violating the terms of their severance or separation agreement
- A current or former worker is breaking a non-solicitation agreement, a non-compete agreement, or a non-disclosure agreement
- An independent contractor is breaking their contract
Sending a cease and desist letter tells the offender that they are violating your rights, urges them to stop, and informs them of what will happen if they do not comply.
