San Diego Breach of Contract

Employment Law Attorneys in California

A contract is a legal agreement between two parties that establishes obligations for both parties. Each person or company who enters into a contract has both the duty to fulfill contract requirements and a right to expect that the other party will live up to his end of the bargain. In California, a breach of contract occurs when:

  • A contract exists;
  • Performance or excuse of performance by the Plaintiff​;
  • Defendant's breach of duties to perform; and
  • Damages to Plaintiff

Common damages include:

  • Expectation damages
    • the dollar amount the employee would have received had the contract been performed minus the employee’s reasonable efforts to mitigate damages
  • Liquidated damages
    • these are usually rare; however, it is specific dollar amount that one party must pay the other for losses that are difficult to determine.
  • Compensatory ​and punitive damages
    • these damages are awarded for emotional distress and are usually limited to discrimination and/or harassment cases
  • Attorney’s fees ​
    • these may be awarded if the contract states the employer must pay these fees if a breach of contract occurs otherwise you must pay your own attorneys fees.
