How to handle a breach of contract

Contracts are a vital part of any business negotiation, but what happens when your employee does not honor the terms set within? If you feel that you have had a contract breached in Pennsylvania, you may not know what steps to take next. We at Kisner Law Firm can help you determine if a contract was breached and what you can do about it.

 

First, it is important for you to decide whether the broken agreement is actually considered a breach of contract. WorkItDaily.com states that verbal communication is much harder to prove than written, so if you are concerned about a negotiation that was made in conversation but is not included in the employee’s contract, it will be much more difficult to prove. This is why it is so important to write everything down in the contact when you and your employee agree to the terms.

 

Next, you should attempt to reconcile the agreement with the other party. If your employee is not holding up his or her end of the deal, bring up the topic and talk about what needs to happen. Sometimes, the issue is simply a matter of not understanding the wording of the document, in which case you need to be sure that everything is clear to avoid this problem in the future.

 

In many cases, you will be able to resolve the issue with a simple conversation and will not need to seek outside help enforcing the terms of the contract. To learn more about handling contract breaches, please visit our web page.
