Breach of Contract Letter to Employee

What is a breach of contract?

An agreement is signed between two parties which legally binds both. A contract signed between the employee and the employer also makes them stay loyal to each other by fulfilling all the terms and conditions that were agreed upon by both of them.

Whenever the employee or the employee fails to follow any of the terms mentioned in the contract, breach of contract takes place. At the time of hiring, there may be different things that the employee has to follow.

These things are mentioned in the contract which the employer asks the employee to sign. After signature, the contract becomes a legal document. If the employee does not follow any of the terms that he previously agreed on, he is said to be in contract breach.
