It is something she has started in the last 2 weeks - she advised me a few days after we finished that she planned to sue and ruin me and the company.
In the contract at states the consultant wouldn't engage in anything which would harm the business - so either we are working to the contract or we are not.
At that time we had also offered her a package to work on commission only due to her underperformance
Thanks for the feedback. 1 Final thing. In the consultancy contract we have a clause that states it will be a breach should they not return company documents or information when requested. I had at start-up phase given the consultant the database to call from and since May had been requesting that document to be returned with the updates on who had been called and the status. That document was never returned despite nurmerous email requests and agreements that she would return.
I maybe clutching at straws but as she has now damaged the business and the business reputation I am reluctant to pay her 3k as well.
Is this an option to cancel the contract as a breach?
