I have another job offer. Am I obligated to continue working if they terminated me

Yes, the employee has contractual obligation to stay until the expiration of the 60-day notice.

Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 3 months ago.

However, if there is an offer on the table, the employee can inform the employer and get mutual releases to terminate the employment contract immediately.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
They denied that so if I leave they can sue me?
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 3 months ago.

Yes, they can sue for breach of the contract, for leaving before the expiration of the 60-day notice.
