I am sorry for the delay, your previous expert has opted out, but was correct in the assessment of your contract. Courts hold people bound to the contracts they signed based on the wording in the contract and under the Parol Evidence Rule oral statements cannot be used to change the meaning of the contract. Under breach of contract
, as the previous expert stated, you must give them a chance to cure any breach. If you are offered this job, they could hold you in breach if you turn down a legitimate job offer from this company. If you obtain another job that they had nothing to do with, then this is grounds to not pay under the terms of the contract, but if you unreasonably refuse the job you have been set up with by them pursuant to the contract they would be able to seek to enforce.
