Contracts Legal Questions and Answers

Contracts

Business Contract

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 24, 2023

Business contract with a termination fee?

I am currently in the process of starting a business and I have been presented with a contract that includes a termination fee. I am not sure what obligations I have with respect to this fee and I would like to know what kind of legal implications I may be subject to in the event of a termination. I am also interested in exploring the potential for negotiation of this fee in order to ensure that I am not overpaying for services that I may no longer need.

N'kia N.

Answered Sep 29, 2023

A termination fee is a payment that one party to a contract pays the other party for terminating the contract before it expires. The general purpose is to compensate the non-terminating party for resources used and/or opportunities missed as a result of entering into the contract that is then terminated early. A well-written termination fee clause will typically include the exact fee to be paid or, if not exact, a clear explanation of how the fee is to be calculated. Additionally, it will include a timeline for the payment(s). Unless the terms of the contract are otherwise contrary to law, the terminating party is presumed to be responsible for paying the stated sum at the stated time. While it is common for a business contract to contain a termination fee clause, a termination fee that is unreasonable under the circumstances is at risk of not being enforceable. However, disputing a termination fee clause can require a lot of the parties' time and money. Before signing a contract with a termination fee clause, all of the parties should be sure that they understand and agree with the clause. If you are considering signing a contract with a termination fee clause, you might have an attorney review it before you sign it. The attorney might even be able to assist you with negotiating changes, if needed or helpful.

Rental Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 5, 2023

How long is a typical rental agreement?

I am a landlord who is looking to rent out a property I own. I am in the process of drafting a rental agreement but I am unsure of the typical length of a rental agreement. I need to know how long a typical rental agreement is in order to ensure I am making a legally binding agreement.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 9, 2023

In North Carolina, it is hard to identify a "typical" length of a property rental agreement. A one-year term is quite common for residential rental agreements. However, for commercial rental agreements, duration varies widely. For example, a lease agreement for a suite in a hair salon might be month-to-month while a lease agreement for a medical facility might be for ten years or longer. In and of itself, the length of a property rental agreement does not determine its validity; but it can certainly affect other aspects of the rental relationship. For example, duration might affect whether the rental agreement must be recorded, whether the landlord must have insurance, how much notice one party must give the other in specific circumstances, and even what happens when the lease expires. Once in effect, a faulty rental agreement can leave a landlord with fewer rights and more liability exposure than expected. It might not hurt to have a knowledgeable attorney review a proposed rental agreement before presenting it to a prospective tenant to sign.

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 13, 2023

What are common pitfalls in contractor agreements?

I am a small business owner looking to hire an independent contractor to help with some of my workload. I am concerned about entering into an agreement with the contractor and would like to know more about common pitfalls in contractor agreements so that I can ensure I am entering into a fair and equitable arrangement.

Peter R.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

There are several potential pitfalls that can be mitigated or removed by addressing them in the contract. These include: whether the contract calls itself an independent contractor agreement but yet fails the test for an independent contractor and therefore brings in matters such as workers compensation coverage (depending on number of employees), liability for contractors acts or omissions, unemployment tax, tax withholding v 1099 and several others. These can be eliminated via proper drafting.

Severance Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Jul 13, 2023

Severance agreement and confidentiality of terms?

I recently left my job of five years and was offered a severance agreement. I am now concerned about the confidentiality of the terms of the agreement, as I am worried that the terms of the agreement could be shared with other potential employers. I am seeking legal advice to understand my rights and obligations regarding the confidentiality of the severance agreement.

Shelia H.

Answered Aug 26, 2023

In most cases, a severance agreement will have a confidentiality provision included. However, even if there is a confidentiality agreement, there are some instances where that confidentiality may be broken. For instance, in the case of a court order requesting the release of information or a government agency, such as the IRS or the state taxing or unemployment office, an employer may have to release information. There are also laws that prohibit the release of certain private information. In your case, it sounds as if your employer didn't include a confidentiality provision in the severance agreement, and for contracts, the general rule is that if a provision isn't included in the contract, it's not included in the contract. That being said, you may want to contact the employer and ask what the employer's policy is regarding the release of information to potential employers that you may be seeking to work with. There are also two laws that you may want to consider speaking to a NC-licensed attorney about. They are the following: 1.§ 1-539.12. Immunity from civil liability for employers disclosing information. "(a) An employer who discloses information about a current or former employee's job history or job performance to a prospective employer of the current or former employee upon request of the prospective employer or upon request of the current or former employee is immune from civil liability and is not liable in civil damages for the disclosure or any consequences of the disclosure." 2. § 14-355. Blacklisting employees. "If any person, agent, company or corporation, after having discharged any employee from his or its service, shall prevent or attempt to prevent, by word or writing of any kind, such discharged employee from obtaining employment with any other person, company or corporation, such person, agent or corporation shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine not exceeding five hundred dollars ($500.00); and such person, agent, company or corporation shall be liable in penal damages to such discharged person, to be recovered by civil action.

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 10, 2023

What fees are usual in an independent contractor agreement?

I am an independent contractor who is in the process of signing an agreement with a client. I am looking for more information about the fees that are usually associated with such an agreement. I want to make sure that I am aware of all the fees associated with the contract so that I do not encounter any surprises down the line.

Steven W.

Answered Dec 4, 2023

There are no set fees that are in an independent contractor agreement. Generally, what is covered are the fees or costs associated with the work or project and they may also include expenses incurred related to the work or project, such as travel and/or accommodations.
