Hi everyone, I recently accepted a contract role at a telematics company with a start date in May. Contract signed. However, circumstances have changed and I got offered a permanent job at another company, better benefits, 2x the compensation. How do I gracefully, legally, and tactfully back out of my commitment to the telematics company?

Honestly, I would just call your manager or whoever you were working with and be upfront and honest. I thinnk honesty is always the best policy. Just give it to them straight.

What state/country?

I assume you would simply send notice that you will no longer be able to fulfill the contract role - like quitting or resigning only difference is you are leaving prior to the start date. Same rules and best practices apply.

It’s a good idea to consider the chance you are effectively burning the bridge with this company and your network at that company. Otherwise, look out for yourself as priority and keep progressing!

P.S. - sounds like paying for 30 mins or 1hr of a lawyer’s time would be beneficial if you are really concerned

The job is in Ontario Canada.

This is very helpful, thanks! I’m especially worried about burning the bridge, but I don’t doubt the company would rescind my offer without hesitation if something came up on their end.

I’m seeking a promotion from L2 to L3 by EOQ1 2023. I’ve set the expectation over the past year and my manager keeps saying “within the next year,” “within the next year.” By the next promotion cycle, I will have been in this role for a year and a half. I am the most junior on my team but I feel I’m consistently delivering better and faster than my senior colleagues. Not to mention my RSUs are drowning and I’m the most tenured at the company on my team. Tips on navigating this?

My firm has a collections budget (80% of your billable rate x 1850 hours) and an hourly budget that must be met in order to be eligible for a bonus. The firm cares very little about originations and will reward someone for making their collections over someone who brings in new work. I missed my collection budget due to some odd timing with a client, but originated more than all my peers so no bonus for me. I’ve been at this same mid level firm for 9 years and it’s all I know. Is this normal??

My wife and I work at the same company and are at the same level, doing the same role, though different departments. She gets paid 15% less than me. I joined after her and didn't know her salary. We've been living with this for a while, and she's gone back asking for a pay bump but been denied, but she did not mention that she was married to a man who had a different pay rate. Should she go back again and mention that? She was hesistant to bring our personal lives into it, but I thought she should call that out specifically. I'm not sure what I should do on my side.
