This can be deemed as a low risk because it usually arises out of an Employer’s actions, which they are in full control of.

Disputes under breach of contract usually involve unpaid wages and unauthorised deductions, or other issues such as holiday entitlement.

When issues are related to administrative and accounting, rather than people and performance related, this is almost entirely under the control of the Employer and easily avoided.

In relatively rare cases, the Employer may deliberately withhold payment due to a genuine dispute, but otherwise this can be avoided by having reliable admin processes, good communication, and well drafted employment contracts.
