3. Breach of Contract (both oral and written agreements)

Employees and Executives are generally employed on an at-will basis, meaning either party can terminate the employment relationship at any time and with little or no notice. You can have an written at-will employment agreement, one with no specific duration, which identifies other provisions such as severance, job duties, salary, bonus, incentive compensation.

Every contract must have an offer and an acceptance, and the promise to performance and to pay for the performance is the consideration.

A breach will occur when one either the employee or employer commit a material breach of the agreement. Please note, minor breaches will not be enough to void the agreement. If you encounter a breach, you need to provide written notice to the other party and demand they perform according to the agreement. Only when the other party continues to remain in breach can the other party seek enforcement in Court or Arbitration.
