Thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance as I answer your question.
- I am a licensed attorney with commercial contract law experience. I will be glad to try and answer your question. I hope that the following information will be helpful to you, but please just write back if you have any follow-up questions or need clarification on anything after reviewing the following information.
- "Is it true I can get out the contract before 30 days." No. Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of misunderstanding on this point, which has become known as the "right to rescission", "30 days cancellation right", etc. Such matters are governed by the Talent Agency Act codified at California Labor Code § 1700 et seq. In other words, while a given contract could certainly provide for a 30-day cancellation right, the law does not automatically afford such a right absent a specific provision.
- I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to write back if needed. I shall be signing off soon to attend to some other professional obligations.
