In the event of a breach of an employment relationship, the employer may be entitled to compensation. The compensation awarded should be appropriate to compensate for the loss and should not exceed the penalty set out in the contract. The court calculates the reasonable amount of compensation by calculating the actual harm suffered by the employer taking into account all the facts and circumstances of the case. Even if the loan provides for the payment of a penalty in the event of a violation, this does not mean that the employer is entitled to full receipt of the agreed amount; the courts determine the appropriate amount of compensation to be paid. An interesting question arises as to whether employers have the right to request the reinstatement of their employee or to obtain an injunction against the worker if he joins a competitor or another employer? In dealing with a similar situation, the Supreme Court held that no specific benefits action could be brought for breach of the personal service or employment contract and that, therefore, the employer was not entitled to reinstate its employees in the event of a breach of the relationship. We have observed the trend that courts are unwilling to issue an injunction against workers who restrict their employment with another employer, unless it is necessary to protect the employer`s proprietary interests or trade secrets. In most cases, assistance in the event of a breach of an employment contract is usually compensation. For example, if, under the contract, a worker must give the employer one month`s notice before terminating and the employer has given the employer only two weeks` notice, the employer may bring an action for compensation. If all else fails, you should take legal action against your employer to be compensated for any loss resulting from the violation. Most agreements explain what will happen if an infringement occurs, and there are certain types of agreements that could be considered illegal and would be annulled in court. A non-competition clause would be an example of this. Some States completely prohibit any form of non-competition, while others impose very strict limits on them.
