  • Breach of contract in NYC for independent contractor? New York

    My question involves independent contractors in the state of: NY in NYC

    I was hired as an independent contractor doing web programming.
    I signed an agreement to work for a period of 3 months.

    On the Monday of the third week of working, they said they have to release me from my contract.
    They said they need another person on a more senior level with better knowledge.
    At that point I had done everything they said to do, even things that was outside of the description of the job.

    So, they showed me the door.

    I like to ask here is.... Can I sue for bridge of contract and claim
    for the pay that is from the 3 month period agreed upon in writing?
    And can I also sue for claims for other opportunities that I was offered but rejected b/c I accepted this job which ended in the third week of a three month period.

    Only an attorney in your state who has read your contract in full can answer as to your options.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
