A contract (implied, oral or written) is a legally enforceable agreement between two parties. A valid contract includes agreement on the terms and conditions, intention of the parties forming the contract, and the contract is supported by consideration.
A breach of a business contract can have a serious impact on the company’s current and future operation. For most businesses, their operation is only as strong as the agreements it has made with other vendors, businesses and individuals. When one party to the contract fails to honor his or her obligations (breach of contract) it can be devastating and costly for the business.
A breach of contract may occur when:
- One party does not perform as he or she promised
- One party makes it clear he or she has no intention to fulfill their end of the contract
- One party does something to prohibit the other from performing the duties he or she promised
