Breach Of Contract Archives

Your three options when a breach of contract occurs

Contracts are drawn up with the main goal of preventing a dispute and deterring conflict. But at the same time, contracts exist so that each party is legally protected in the way they see fit. If you have entered into a contract that has since been breached, you may wonder what action you can take in order to enforce the terms.

Noncompliance with contract terms must be handled swiftly

Contracts are a central part of business, but there are times when companies don't follow the terms of the contract. This puts the other party in a precarious position because they might not want to have to take legal action to have the terms of the agreement enforced, but they need to know that the contract's terms will be followed.

Understanding material and nonmaterial contract breaches

Contracts are not meant to be broken, and the act of putting the contract in place should perform as a deterrent so that disputes can be avoided in the future. When the terms of a contract are applied to real-life situations, it can sometimes be difficult to determine whether a contract has, in fact, been breached and whether action can be legitimately taken.

Can I fire a physician immediately for breaching their contract?

You have a physician whom you've invested a lot of time and energy in recruiting and training. Maybe you've built your facility's reputation on the expertise or experience that they bring to the table. It can be difficult to let them go. However, if they breach the terms of their contract, it may be warranted. There are a few factors that you should take into account before you fire a doctor if you want to avoid being sued.

Business contracts provide important protections

Businesses use contracts for a lot of different things.

This is very common in the medical industry.

Can I sue my South Florida real estate agent?

Finding the right real estate agent is important to the success of your home purchase or sale. Some real estate agents are top-notch and go above and beyond for their clients. Others are perfectly adequate and get the job done with few hassles.

Understanding the enforceability of non-compete agreements

As an employee in the state of Florida, it is likely that you will have signed a non-compete agreement at some point or another. This means that you may be limited in terms of the types of companies or organizations that you will be able to work for in the future.

What's a 'garden leave' clause (and does your business need one)?

As a business owner, you know who the key players on your team are -- and you understand the potential risk that your business faces if a team member decides to leave and set up shop elsewhere. Everything from your client list to your plans for a new product could be at risk. You probably have noncompete agreements in place with at least some of your employees.

Negotiating a better noncompete agreement

It's estimated that 20 percent of American employees -- from all different kinds of industries -- are subject to noncompete clauses. In theory, noncompete agreements are designed to protect high-level secrets, client lists and intellectual property from being misused by ex-employees who want to go into business for themselves.
