Based on the contract, I am an independent contractor. The agency has not sent me to any casting or gotten me any work for a year. The contract length is 2-year with auto-renewal and termination clause that gives me a small window before the renewal to act (but they can do so at any time). There is a section which states that they do not promise work, but by doing nothing, they are limiting my ability to go independent and/or with another agency that can get me work. I understand that Washington is mostly an at-will State, but that does not necessarily covers independent contractors. It does not seem right that this agency can force my income to be zero by doing nothing. I owe them no monies.
Is there a way to get out of this contract, based on non-performance on their part?
