Resolving Disputes Regarding Implied Contracts
Implied contracts are unwritten agreements between a job candidate or employee and an employer regarding their professional relationship. Each side understands their roles and responsibilities with regards to the company.
In the case that an employer fails to follow through with the contract, the employee might have grounds for legal action.

The Laws Concerning Implied Contracts
There are two basic types of implied contracts:
- Implied-in-Fact Contract: Created by the circumstances or past actions of the parties
- Implied-in-Law Contract: Also known as a quasi-contract, this is when the law obligates a contract between two parties even if such a contract was unintended
Implied contracts can be enforced by law. These contracts are intended to prevent "unjust enrichment," when one party receives a benefit from another without receiving their own compensation for services rendered.
Employers often try to dispute implied contracts if they are not written contracts or otherwise documented. However, even oral contracts still hold as much weight as written agreements.
Informal exchange may still be considered legally binding. Both employees and their employers are expected to stand by the terms of the contract, even if they did not realize the contract existed.
How to Pursue a Valid Contract Claim
It can be difficult to determine if you have a true contract in an implied contract case. In any such claim, there are a few things that must be established.
Your claim must establish the following:
- That the contract, implied or otherwise, existed between both parties
- That your employer or someone working in that capacity broke the contract
- The defendants in the case, or the opposing party, are the appropriate ones to sue
- You suffered a financial loss, were wronged, or left a detrimental impact on your career
Any type of contract dispute is often a very contentious matter that needs prompt resolution.
