Bus company accuses school district of breach of contract

Posted by William J. Cook | Jun 20, 2019 | 0 Comments

Business contracts between two more more companies in Florida and elsewhere can be complex documents with provisions that may prove highly debatable at times. Should an arrangement come to a sudden end, all parties involved could end up engaged in disputes over the interpretation and use of these provisions. A bus company in another state has recently filed a breach of contract lawsuit against a school district after the sudden termination of its contract.

The incident reportedly stems from a recent state audit that led to the discovery that the school district was missing documentation of background and clearance checks for its bus drivers. While attempting to resolve the matter, the district states that it was forced to close its schools for two days. The bus company states that the district subsequently accused it of violating the terms of the agreement and chose to terminate its contract.

The company states that the decision to close schools was unnecessary and that the district had other options available to prevent its lack of records from disrupting operations. It also asserts that the district failed to provide it with the necessary notification of termination in accordance with the terms of its contract. The company has accused the district of using the temporary closing as an excuse to end the arrangement.

When business arrangements come to a sudden end, the impact the situation could have on all parties involved can be significant. Business owners who feel that a breach of contract has occurred could choose to retain the services of an attorney for guidance on how to protect their interests. An attorney in Florida can examine the situation and assist a client in pursuing the restitution deserved through the necessary channels.
