Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. I am sorry to hear about your circumstances, in relation to a breach of contract there are two types breaches express terms and breaches of implied terms.

Express terms relates to terms specifically set out in the contract of employment for example, pay, hours job location.

Implied terms related to terms that are implied into the contract of employment, such as the duty of trust and confidence and the duty of fidelity.

It would depend on what breaches of contract you were pursuing would depend on what part of the Employment Rights Act were relevant.
