I am currently working a freelance contract as a software developer for a company in another state, NC. The contract is very brief and only states the start/end date, the rate and the minimum hours of work per week. There is no language around termination.
The contract is through the end of Sept, but for personal/family reasons I'd really like to get out of the contract by the end of May. I've never been in a position like this before. I understand that I'll probably burn a bridge with this company, but I still want to remain ethical and professional from my end.
Without a termination clause, am I still allowed to resign or do I need to negotiate?
