A breach of contract occurs when a party fails to perform in accordance with the terms of an agreement. A breach of contract between an employer and employee typically arises in the context of employment and severance agreements.
A party who has suffered a breach of contract may be entitled to money damages. Where money damages cannot sufficiently compensate an employee for the breach, other legal remedies may be awarded prohibiting the breaching party from taking a given course of action or requiring the breaching party to honor the terms of the agreement. Other damages are typically unavailable.
