Hello. I am a mental health care agency and I have a contractor who signed a contract
with the following "Terms: The contractor agrees to commit to one year of service and complete a minimum of 12 billable hours per week with clients at Wendy Carannante
& Associates. This is to insure continuation of care of patients. " Termination section says "Termination This Agreement shall remain in effect for one year and after one year will remain in effect until (1) terminated by either party with (60) day written
notice to the other party, (2) terminated by either party for cause, or (3) terminated automatically by a provision of this Agreement. Sixty- (60) days of the agreement is considered a trial period and the Contracting Service Agency and/or Contractor can cancel
anytime. The parties shall deal with each other in good faith after any notice of termination has been given. Cause shall include violation of this Agreement or any act of exposing the other party liability to others. Sections Two, Three, Five and Nine shall
survive termination of this Agreement. The current fees of for services will be valid for a period of oneyear. If the relationship between contractor and contracting agency dissolves, the current clients are terminated or transitioned to other therapists within
Mindful Health based on best practices
." The contractor after signing a 1 year commitment to begin on September 3rd has now shared that they got a better offer and they may be only able to offer one Saturday a month if that. This is in violation of their contract.
What should I do? I have already started the process of getting them in insurances and reserved a room for them and ruled out other candidates. This comes as a huge inconvenience and does not seem fair. Please advise on this issue!
