The article discusses issues regarding the termination of a contractor from a construction project. Most contracts contain provisions addressing an owner's right to terminate the contractor for miscellaneous or certain contractor breaches or actions/inactions, commonly referred to as a termination for default. Many contracts also contain provisions addressing a right often retained by the owner to terminate the contract merely at the owner's wish and convenience, commonly known as a termination for convenience.
