What Is a Breach of Contract
Contracts are legally binding documents which are a written agreement between an employee and an employer. If any terms of that contract are broken, then that is considered to be a breach of contract.
All employees should work on a contractual basis, and all employees are encouraged to read the “fine print”. But there may be times when an employee feels that they have been mistreated and that their employer is in breach of their employment contract.
It can even be more difficult if the breach of contract is against terms which were not written down and signed off on by both the employee and the employer.
Common Breaches of Contract in the Workplace
The most common breaches of contract include:
- Not being paid for hours worked
- Not being paid for travel expenses owed
- Not being paid sick pay or holiday pay as negotiated in your employment contract
- Changes being made to the terms and conditions of the contract which were not signed off on by an employee
- Not being paid during your “notice period” (the length of time between you handing in your notice and leaving the job)
Dealing with Employer Loopholes
Handling a breach of contract is rarely straight forward, particularly as employers may use contractual “loopholes” to legitimize a breach in a contract. For example, your employer may ask you to relocate against your will, but if there is a “mobility clause” in your contract your employer may believed that he or she has the right to have you move.
