Wrigley rooftop clubs file breach of contract suit against Cubs

Georgia baseball fans and sports history buffs alike know that Wrigley Field is part of the history of the sport. Since 2004, the field has been undergoing renovations costing nearly $375 million. At that time, the Cubs signed a contract with the rooftop clubs regarding the renovations. As part of the revitalization of the field, the Cubs now want to install advertising signage and video scoreboards above the bleachers, which the rooftop clubs say violates their agreement. A breach of contract suit was filed in Jan. 2015 to stop the installation.

Georgia business owners may benefit from knowing that the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that the judged erred and that the wage and hour complaint could receive class action status in accordance with the Supreme Court's decision.

Most of the audits the agency conducts are in response to complaints filed by people looking for jobs and current employees. However, the reason for an audit is not often provided to a company.

Growth is a central factor in nearly every business plan, and ordinarily, business formation anticipates rapid growth once off the ground. However, Shake Shack is in no hurry to expand and, instead, decided to take its time and build slowly.
