A former college official is suing the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg and its president, contending they breached a contractual agreement concerning her resignation.
Breach of contract is something that all businesses should try to never allow to happen.

Contracts are a central part of business, but there are times when companies don't follow the terms of the contract.

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.
