I have a situation with a snow account where they have signed my contract as well as another companies contract. I recieved my signed contract on October 27th and then got a phone call from one of the owners wanting an immediate termination December 1st. The guy told me that there was a miss communication in the company and they were going with another company this year. I told the guy that the contract states I need a 30 day written notice to break the contract. He responded by telling me I can just bill him compensation for breaking the contract early. So I took the month of December 2010 and billed him that for compensation since that was a (30 day pay period). Now here it is January and we have had a pretty slow year for snow in south eastern Michigan and they are not wanting to pay that bill. After they responded and said they aren't paying it I explained to them that this contract is still valid then until either A: I recieve a full payment or B: Until I recieve my 30 day written notice. So far I have not heard anything back from them since that. Am I going to be at a total loss here or should I keep them on my list and continue my part of the deal and just hope they pay my bill for the services I actually provide for them?
