24 Jul 2019 All notes for Subtopic 602.03000 – Contract Repudiation or Breach 1695M, City of Ontario. 602.3000: EMPLOYER REFUSAL TO BARGAIN  When a party to a contract indicates it will not perform the contractual terms, that party has committed an anticipatory repudiation of a contract. In this circumstance, an innocent party has two options. First, the innocent party may terminate the contract by accepting the repudiation and sue for damages. Ontario Court of Appeal considers repudiation of employment contract by employees If an otherwise exemplary employee refuses to carry out an employer’s instructions based on an honest but mistaken belief that the instructions are illegal, is this cause for dismissal? Repudiation is "a serious matter and is not to be lightly found" and requires a clear indication of the absence of readiness and willingness to perform the contract (Shevill v Builders Licensing Board (1982) 149 CLR 620). Whether repudiation has occurred is determined objectively. Only if the innocent party elects to accept the repudiation does the contract come to an end. The innocent party is not obliged to accept the repudiation, and if he or she does not so accept then the contract continues in effect. The Court of Appeal then stated the test to determine whether there has been an acceptance of a repudiation. This unconditional refusal is known as a "repudiation" of a contract. Once one party to a contract indicates--either through words or actions--that it's not going to perform its contract obligations, the other party can immediately claim a breach of contract (failure to perform under the contract) and seek remedies such as payment. Repudiation of a contract occurs where one party renounces their obligations under a contract. It can be that they are unwilling or unable to perform their obligations under a contract. Repudiation is seen to be quite a serious matter and the court requires a ‘clear indication’ that a party is unready or unwilling to perform the contract.

Repudiation of Contract in Commercial Leasing March 14, 2019 The Alberta Court of Appeal recently decided a case relating to a commercial lease agreement and what constitutes a repudiation of contract. In Remedy Drug Store Co. Inc. v Farnham, recently released, the Ontario Court of Appeal clarified how the test for repudiation applies to settlement agreements. Repudiation occurs when one party breaches a term of a contract that is sufficiently important that the other party may treat the contract as being at an end and walk away from the contract. If fundamental breach is established, the next question is what effect, if any, that has on the applicability of other terms of the contract…I do not think there is generally much difficulty where the innocent party has elected to treat the breach as a repudiation, bring the contract to an end and sue for damages. Repudiation occurs by the wrongdoer`s conduct “by words or conduct evincing an intention not to be bound by the contract”. In this case, the trial judge conducted an analysis of both types of breach, and concluded that repudiation by the Langes had occurred, but that fundamental breach had not.
