Frustration Of Contract

Frustration of Contract is a principle used in defining the termination of the employee-employer relationship.

The principle of "frustration of contract" gives an employer a legal means to end the employer-employee relationship. This frustration can occur when the employment contract cannot be performed. It has to be result of an intervening event that is not the fault of either the employee or the employer.

When this occurs then it is not reasonable to expect the employee to resume employment in the foreseeable future.
