Hi there and thank you for your question,
I will try to assist you with your legal question but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions as you like until you are 100% satisfied.
If the contract provides for a termination period of 3 months, then anything less than that WOULD amount to a breach of the contract.
If you wanted to remain in good standing with the company, then your ONLY real way out is by way of negotiation. You need to arrive at some sort of mutual understanding as to the termination of the contract, and what will happen as a result thereof.
Perhaps you could find them somebody to take over - and that would make them happy. Who knows.
Legally, I don't really know what to tell you, except that if you don't see the notice period through it would most certainly amount to a breach...
If my answer hasn't answered all of your questions, please send me a REPLY with follow up questions so that I can continue to assist you in this same thread for as long as you need. Let me know if you need more advice - dont just rate my answer as "bad".
