Hello, my wife entered into an independent contractor agreement with a direct selling company to be a manager. She worked for the company for 7 years and recently submitted her 30 day advance written notice of termination
. She offered to transition her team within that 30 days but the company ultimately ended the relationship immediately. The paid her commission for the 11 days in the month she submitted her resignation but did not pay her for the 19 days in the following month.
At the time of her resignation, she received an email from her manager stating she would only be paid through May and she replied with, I submitted a 30 day advance notice of resignation and expect to be paid those 30 days.
No report was ever sent outlining her commissions for the period that ended on June 19 and she was never paid by the 10th of the following month as stated.
We submitted a letter outlining the facts of the 30 day resignation and the material breach for non-payment of commissions from June 1 to June 19. (the main consideration in the contract since she did not receive a salary)
Effectively we used Paragraph 12(b) - Immediate termination for material breach clause to terminate the contract and rescind any rights given and cancel the contract.
Do we need to do anything else or does the letter service truly complete the contract termination.
