When an agreement between two parties has been put into writing, both parties should abide by the agreements stipulated in the contract. This is especially true between an employer-employee arrangement because not following what’s written in a contract can result in suspension or, worse, termination of employment.
Breach of contract happens when either an employer or an employee breaks at least one of the terms stated in the contract. To put a remedy to a breach of contract, another contract may be made in order to put things in order. Here we give you six Sample Contracts that can be used as a reference for making a new contract in case of a breach. Check out all of the samples we have below.

Most Important Element of a Breach of Contract
A contract serves as a toll that establishes a promise that is legally enforceable. On the off chance that either the employer or employee breaks one of the promises stated in the contract, the complaining party should be given an opportunity to sue for breaking the rules of the agreement. One of the most important things to prove when it comes to these complaints is the existence of the contract.
It will be easier to determine which part of the contract was breached if the existence of a contract is proven. A written contract is not necessary as long as an oral one can be confirmed. There are three elements that can help prove the existence of an enforceable contract:
- Offer – This is simply the reason why the parties involved entered the agreement.
- Acceptance – The genuine acceptance of the agreement and its essential terms. It will be easier to see the acceptance in written contracts as this is represented by signatures of the involved.
- Consideration – This talks about what the responsibilities of each party are.

Legal Consequences to Breach of Contract
There are two types of contract breach: material breach and non-material breach. A material breach refers to one party’s failure to comply with the serious agreements in the contract whereas a non-material breach refers to failure to deliver the lesser serious parts of the contract.
For a material breach, the complainant
- can sue the breaching party and recover appropriate damages, and
- is excused from doing their responsibility as stipulated in the contract and can also stop being involved with the contractual situation should they suspect a breach of the contract.
For a non-material breach, the complainant
- can sue for damages caused by the breach and
- should still do their responsibility as stipulated the in contract.
