Question: What happens if an employment contract is breached?
Written and verbal contracts are binding by law, so any failure to honour the terms laid out in an employment contract may constitute a breach on the part of the employer or employee. In either case it is first wise to check the terms of the contract to identify if the relevant behaviour amounts to a breach, then it is generally accepted that you approach either your employer or employee directly in order to resolve any breaches informally.
For example, a common breach of an employment contract could relate to wages, either not being paid, or employees not completing the agreed upon amount of work. In many cases the breach may be the result of a misunderstanding and can be easily remedied. If this is unsuccessful, the aggrieved party may pursue a legal course of action.
