Contract Interference

Interference with Contracts

Safeguarding Your Rights with The Mirkhan Law Firm

Contracts are an essential part of doing business. When one party fails to fulfill their part of a contract, a breach of contract has taken place. A breach, however, is sometimes caused when a third party interferes with another party's ability to perform their obligations under a contract. This is termed as an interference with contracts. If you or your business is endangered due to contract interference, a skilled business lawyer should be consulted as soon as possible.

Two Major Ways to Combat Interference

Contract interference can occur in situations where non-compete agreements or non-solicitation agreements exist. A non-compete makes employees sign a contract declaring that they will not work for a direct competitor for a certain period of time if they should leave their current job. For California businesses, however, it is important to realize that these types of agreements are not enforceable in the court of law against employees.

Non-solicitation agreements are absolutely valid in California. They keep individuals who were once employees from stealing valuable employees from their former place of work to join them in their new business venture. There are difficulties with both agreements and it may be hard to enforce people from leaving voluntarily or proving that former employees are purposefully interfering with contracts. Having the professional and legal assistance of someone who knows the legal system well, such as The Mirkhan Law Firm, can be invaluable.

Determining Interference of Agreements

There are several key factors that must be demonstrated in a case of interference of contract. Some of these factors may include the following :

  • A valid contract exists between two parties.
  • The party interfering had knowledge of the existence of the contract.
  • The party interfering knowingly impeded a contracted party from performing their obligations.
  • The third party was not authorized to act in this way.
  • The contract was breached based on the actions of the interfering party.
  • The interfering party caused harm or damage to one or both of the parties.
