Legal Question in Employment Law in Florida

I got into a contract with a former employer that offered me a severance pay when they closed their business, but the employer has not honored the terms of the contract, and has not paid me what was offered...does this constitute as a "breach of contract" and if so, how can I go about collecting what is owed to me?

As you describe it there is a breach of contract. You will need to sue if they will not honor the agreement.

Depends upon whether you have a written contract or not or something to document you agreement with them. An employer is not under any obligation to provide severance. Feel free to call me if you wish to discuss this further.
