Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you. Please just give me a moment to review your question....
First, to clarify, this is a matter of contract law, not tort law. The latter pertains to injuries to your person.
Under general principles of contract law, a contract can be rescinded only if there is a "material" breach. A material breach is not just any violation of the terms, but a violation so substantial that it deprives the other party of any substantial benefit from the contract. In most cases, being deprived of a few days of a 194 workday contract would not constitute a material breach because substantial benefit is still derived from the contract. Thus, this would not typically be grounds for rescinding (what you refer to as "negating") the entire contract.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
