This letter template is intended to assist in the drafting of the termination of a commercial contract with another company. It contains key elements to avoid misunderstanding and to end a partnership on consensual terms. If you don`t want to include all of these clauses in your contract, select „No“ and you can choose which clauses to include. The notice relates to the time a party makes available to another party if it wishes to terminate its obligations under the agreement before the agreed end date. The purpose of the communication is to enable the service provider to find another job or client to find a replacement service provider. In most jurisdictions, the law does not provide independent contractors with the same minimum termination protection as is usually available to workers (unless the disclosure is expressly provided in the agreement). However, courts may send a notification (or payment instead of termination) to an independent contractor if they can prove that he or she was economically dependent on the client. Under these conditions, the courts may impose reasonable notice or damages. Although such a specific language reflects the parties` intention to waive their rights to Section 2125 of the CCQ by specifying the circumstances under which Xprima may terminate its service contract, the Court nevertheless rejected the broadcast effect.
If section 2125 of the CCQ is not in order, the waiver of its rights is only valid if it is expressed unequivocally. In this regard, the language used in the termination clause had to clearly express the intention of the parties, without leaving room for interpretation. The Court also noted that a fixed-term service contract does not necessarily demonstrate the parties` intention to waive their rights under section 2125 of the CCQ. For these reasons, the Court rejected the effect of the termination clause and upheld Xprima`s right to terminate its service contracts prematurely. The restitution clause stipulates that the service provider returns all the property belonging to the client after the termination of the contract. No no. If you need a Master Service Agreement and subordinate agreements, you should consult a qualified lawyer in your jurisdiction. When a customer prematurely terminates a service contract, the financial impact goes far beyond the present, as the provider loses all the profits it should realize for the duration of the contract. As courts are very reluctant to award damages for future losses, more and more service providers are inserting „Liquidated Damages“ clauses in their service contracts to compensate for those losses.
