An attorney fee provision in a contract presents two problems in practice, with one solution.
NY can make laws to protect its workers, but they may or may not be useless if the employment contract requires suit out of state.
Clients frequently use form contracts with their customers. The clients figure that whoever put these contracts together for them must have known what they were doing and that all the provisions are solely for their benefit. Unfortunately, there is one type of provision in a standard contract that often backfires instead of helping.
