Hi All,

I blew it.

I missed Tom's comment that " I left a good company and signed on with a
contracting company five months ago to work as an on-site contractor for
a certain amount of time and a certain amount of money."

So in this case, I definitely can't cite statistics or talk about
employee commitments.

It's maddening, inconsiderate, hurtful, and unfortunate, but it is not
unethical. Companies and individuals put in contracts terms that are
widely accepted as normal and quite ethical.

You might also want to consider that the reason they gave you is not
necessarily the truth -- now that's unethical. Maybe they didn't like
your work, maybe they felt there was a personality conflict, maybe they
had any number of other problems that they do not want to get into.

The reason sounds fishy to me, actually. Price is not usually something
that is a problem after a contract is signed.

I would be as angry as you, I am sure, if the same thing happened to me,
but I would not call the company unethical for terminating your
contract. If they are not telling you the real reason for the
termination, I would call that unethical. I am suspicious, as I said. I
just do not buy that the cost was too high. It fails the smell test.
