breach of contractWhen it comes to business law, it is important to know what the term “breach of contract” means. Contracts are the lifeblood of business agreements; without them, business agreements may go unfulfilled. A breach of contract is one of the most common reasons people file lawsuits. Because of this, it is important that you know your rights in a business agreement. Has someone not upheld their end of a business agreement? The good news is that you may not be at a total loss.

Defining Breach of Contract:

Understanding the breach of contract concept is simple. A breach of contract occurs when a term of a contract — written or oral — is not upheld. This all-encompassing term serves to describe a number of things that can break a business agreement. For example, if a payment was not made or not made in full, there was a breach of contract. In addition, if a pre-agreed quality of work or time frame for a job was not met, a breach of contract occurred. The list does not end here, though. If a job was not completed all together, a breach of contract also happened. The list continues, but the same basic concept of a term of an agreement not being fulfilled still applies.
