Breach of Contract
In the state of California, most employees and employers have an “at will” relationship, and have the right to terminate this working relationship at any time or for any reason, unless the employee has a contract for a specific amount of time. When a specific contract exists between the employer and the employee, the termination of the employment must be in accordance with this contract.
Once an employment contract has been agreed upon by both the employer and the employee in a written, implied, or oral form, both parties must comply with the terms of the contract. A breach of contract occurs when an employee or employer fails to fulfill their obligations under the terms of the contract.
A contract can be breached by:
- Not performing as promised under the employment contract
- Making the contract duties impossible for the employee to perform
- An employee or employer making their intention known that they will no longer perform under the obligations of the contract
