Quitting after signing a contract

7 posts in this topic

Currently, I have a contract signed in California where I would begin after graduation. I do not currently have a start date yet, but I have to break this contract due to family issues keeping me closer to home. So now I will be taking a job in North Carolina. 

Before I let the Cali job know I cannot make it, is there anything I need to worry about? Any legal repercussions? 

 

Thanks a lot for any advice, because I'm pretty terrified to let the California job down seeing as I was very excited about this position before.

You might need to get a lawyer or just call them to explain the situation. Since you haven't started yet, I think it might be easier to get out than if you have started.
Review your contact to see if you have a way out

Do you have an actually contract? What does it say? Or is it just a letter of acceptance outlining your pay, benefits, etc.

I signed an actual contract, but I don't have a start date yet. It says either party can terminate the contract with a 30 days notice. I'm just worried since I haven't even started if there are any issues with this.

When are you supposed to start? Honestly, I think it's best to just be upfront and honest with them as soon as possible. Let them know that due to unforeseen family complications you will not be able to move there and regretfully can not take the job. I'm sure they're not going to spend any time/money doing anything about it. I doubt they can even do anything, does it say what happens if you cancel without 30 day notice? You should pay back an signing/relocation bonus if you got any. If they spent any money on credentialing they may ask for it, but I doubt it.

I let them know yesterday and they were very understanding about it. I wasn't supposed to start for a couple of months anyway so they weren't too upset. Thanks for the help.

Glad it worked out! If you were 2 months from starting and the contract required 30 day notification, why worry so much?
