What Constitutes a Breach of Contract?

A contract between two or more parties creates a legally-binding agreement to which all parties involved must adhere. If one party fails to perform its particular duties as designated in the contract, or in some manner interferes with another party’s ability to perform its duties, it may be charged with a breach of contract. The four different categories of breach of contract include, in order of increasing severity:

  • Minor breach
  • Material breach
  • Fundamental breach
  • Anticipatory breach

Organizations or individuals that breach a contract break a legally-binding document, and therefore may be subject to legal action.
