You were the first with references (by 1 minute!). The other answers helped reinforce yours; wish I could grade everybody,
perhaps because I'm an old teacher. Thanks to all. What a group!

Sí, se dice violación de contrato.
Puedes también decir ruptura de contrato, pero generalmente el término más usado (en España), es el primero.
Suerte.

Explanation:
Los diccionarios de Routledge, de Lozano Irueste y de Alcaraz Varó, traducen "breach of contract" como "incumplimiento de contrato, aunque Alcaraz Varó ofrece asimismo "violación" y "ruptura" como posibles traducciones del término.
Yo elegiría de todas formas "incumplimiento del contrato".

Un saludo.
