Breach of Contract


The Arizona Employment Protection Act confirms the status of Arizona employees as at-will employees unless the employee and employer “have signed a written contract to the contrary.”  The written contract to the contrary that alters the at-will employment status must be for a specified term. If an employee is terminated without good cause prior to the expiration of the contract term, the employee has a claim for breach of contract.  Determining if good cause exists amounting to level of ending a contract requires a case-by-case fact analysis.

In the employment context, other breach of contract claims might exist, such as those for unpaid wages and benefits. These contracts do not require a written contract in order to state a claim.
