Carl Junction, MO asked in Employment Law for Missouri

Q: can an incoming company terminate independent contractors without any notification whatsoever?

I was an independent contractor delivering pharmaceuticals to nursing homes for a private pharmacy until three weeks ago.

The president of the logistics business I was contracted through informed me in july that at the end of the month, when the current contract expired, another company would be taking over the business.

I was never told by the new company they were not picking up my contract. I received no phone call, email, nor did anyone inform me in person they were not retaining my services. I had no notice whatsoever.

Is what they did to me legal?

A: The contract expired, right? You have to have an attorney read the contract and advise you.
