    Default Notice Requirement and Pay Forfeiture Clause

    My question involves independent contractors in the state of: ME and MI

    An item in the contract offered to me concerns me:

    1. If I fail to give two weeks' notice at resignation, I will forfeit any pending payment for completed work.

    Is this legal? Is this enforceable if there is a health issue?

    I am not understanding how I can be giving "notice" when I am not actually an employee, and I'd like to know what rights may go along with these responsibilities, in light of the fact that I am technically a contractor.

    Thank you.

    If you wish to waive your right to bill your client under certain circumstances, you can do so.

    If you believe you are being misclassified as an independent contractor instead of as an employee, check the standards listed by the IRS and whatever state you're doing the work in.
