Employment contract allows Employee to resign at any time without cause by providing at least 120 days notice. The Employer can then require the Employee to continue working for the 120 days or, in the alternative, terminate employment immediately and pay the employee out for the remainder of the notice period. Employee is ready to get the hell out of Dodge and pursue a new opportunity. Is there any argument that the 120 days notice and requirement to work provision is invalid?
Answer: Probably not. A contract is a contract.
Moral: Read what you sign before you sign it and maybe you won’t be wishing down the road that it said something different when life happens.
