  • Q. What are my options for breaking a 90day contract clause and leaving early from a 3 year contract.
    A: Tennessee is an at-will state. This means that employees are allowed to leave their employment at any time without a reason, or in other words, this means that there are no federal or state laws that require an employee to give notice to his or her employer before quitting, subject to a few exceptions. One of those exceptions are if an employee has signed an employment contract (which is sounds like you have based on the title of this question). Specifically, an employment contract may include procedures for terminating your employment contract. This means that if you signed a contract stating that you will provide 90 day notice before quitting, you (the employee) has a binding legal obligation to give the notice or be in breach of the contract. Your contract may state what the penalty is (sometimes called liquidated damages) for violating the clause. Furthermore, you may be held liable for the costs accrued by the company for having to find your replacement during the period covered under your contract. Generally, Tennessee courts will uphold employment contracts. If you did sign a contract, your best bet is to approach your company and ask that the waive the notice provision and/or will sign a supplement/addendum. If they don't agree and you leave early, you may be on the hook for various liabilities/costs.
