My question involves independent contractors in the state of: Colorado.
In June I signed an independent contracting agreement to teach music lessons. The company's CFO signed on their behalf. There was a brief follow-up conversation a few weeks later when I texted the CFO to check on the status of all the other paperwork (background check authorization, tax forms, etc.). Since then I have heard nothing from them. They haven't added me to their teacher list or done anything else to move things along. I sent another email to the CFO in August to see what was happening but she didn't respond. The company is still posting job ads and adding new teachers to their website, so I know they haven't gone out of business. The contract automatically renews every year unless one of us terminates it. Has the company already implicitly terminated it by not proceeding with the business relationship? If not, is there any reason I should not terminate it myself?
