Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No
Employment Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 6 months ago

If you believe that the person is not performing to the standards necessary to fulfill the contract, then in effect, you are claiming the person is in breach of contract.

We can continue to discuss this. Feel free to ask any followup questions.
