subcontractor gave notice via text 30 days out but was becoming disruptive once notice was give so was asked to leave before the end of the 30 day period. According to the contract if the subcontractor terminates prior to the contract end date they are required to buy out of their contract, but because they were asked to leave before the end of the 30 notice period they believe they don't have to pay the cancelation fee. Since they had already given notice haven't they already violated the contract agreement regardless of whether they are asked to leave before the end of the notice period? The contract doesn't state that the business has to honor the 30 notice period.
Your argument seems sound. That said, a proper legal analysis regarding the rights and obligations under a written contract without first reviewing the entire contract. I caution you from relying on any alanysis received here where the provider of such answer has not seen the contract. With that proviso, I offer the following thoughts. If someone gives notice of termination of a contract before the time provided in the contract, that is likely a breach. If the sub was asked to leave early before his notice date had come that may affect the amount of loss caused by the breach but it does not change that a breach occurred. Again, this analysis is intended to give you some idea as a courtesy and is not to be relied on as legal advise. Best of luck.
