**Note: You should always consult your ORIGINAL contract to see what Cancellation/Termination/Rescheduling/Refund/Exchange/Bad Weather/Force Majeure/Act of God-language explicitly says and follow the directions of your contract. However, also keep in mind that life happens to ALL of us and that as a business owner, you have the opportunity to look at the letter of the law, and to consider what makes sense for your business in terms of PR/business goodwill/long-term relationships and word of mouth. 

Remember that some industries and niches can be a small world and that trying to be a reasonable, decent human and navigate changed circumstances WHILE holding appropriate business boundaries can be the best course. Please consult with a licensed attorney in your LOCAL jurisdiction as many of the laws around force majeure and “impossibility” of performing a contract can be state-specific. 

Suggested Plan: 


  • Add the Force Majeure Protection Clause to all NEW contracts going forward (you will probably not be able to get anyone to agree to amending and adding it once you have already signed a contract)
  • In the event something happens >>> Try to work out a compromise with your Client where you reschedule, find an alternate provider to cover for you, offer digital products or services instead, break down services into chunks, or ANY other creative solution first.  Use the Rescheduling Contract to change the service date and/or any other important details!
  • If you really can’t come to an agreement with the Client about proceeding with services in any way and the client demands cancellation >>> Cancellation Contract. Use the Cancellation Contract your original contract will be officially “Terminated.” Thanks Arnold...we WON’T be back.
