I'm sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Your I'm not able to see a question in your post.What specifically would you like to know?
Are you saying they are terminating the contract?And if so what does the contract say about early termination without just cause?Are you saying they are doing this because you had a heart attack?
Let me make sure I understand. You have a 9 year contract and have worked for 4 of them. There is no provision in the contract for early termination and you are being terminated because you were off work for 2 weeks as you were recovering from a heart attack. Is that essentially the correct summary?
Are you certain that this was a fixed nine year contract that could not be terminated early?
Then you have a very strong case.
The contract cannot be terminated so you are entitled to the full 8 years pay. They cannot say you breached the contract when you are able to come back to work in just two weeks. So they cannot argue that the contract was frustrated stating you could not comply with its terms.
For this reason you should take the contract and consult with an experienced lawyer at once who can send the company letter threatening a lawsuit for considerable damages.
