Exploring the Terms of a Written Contract. The provisions of a contract can be numerous. In fact, there is no limit to the number of terms or conditions a written employment contract may contain. Typically, an employment contract will contain a length of service provision which dictates the duration of employment. For example, if an employment contract contains a term of five years for employment, the employee is under contract for that time period and cannot legally quit or be fired, nor, in some instances, can he work for another company.

California Breach of Contract Damages: The big question in breach of contract cases is what can employer recover in terms of damages. It is important to note that an employee can only recover the amount he or she would have earned had there been no breach of contract. These damages are called restitution damages since they are meant to make the employee “whole” by placing him back in the position he would have been in had there been no violation of the law.

Good Cause for Termination : To determine if an implied contract has been broken, the employee must consider what he’s suing for. For instance, maybe the written contract stated that the employee would be there for five years, unless there was “good cause” to fire him. The employee doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong.This is the most common situation. The employer said there was good cause to terminate and the employee says there was no good cause. Pic Cred:

Employee Handbooks Most often, the “terms” of the implied contract can be found in an employee handbook. For example, the handbook may have a “progressive discipline policy” (see discussion above), which states that employees are to be given warnings for certain infractions before they are fired.
