376.     Injunction and inquiry.

Injunctions are an equitable remedy, and will be granted only if the claimant's remedies at law are inadequate1.

An injunction is not normally granted to prevent breach of the terms of a contract. Thus, as a general rule, the court will not restrain the employer even from wrongfully exercising the power of forfeiture, as the contractor can be compensated in damages for any loss he may sustain by reason of the forfeiture2.

The court will not force the employer to employ a person to whom he objects, whether reasonably or unreasonably, to perform the works3.
