Can one survive by dehydrating water all day? One certainly has the right to do that and call it "work" but unless the "work" of dehydrating water benefits somebody who is WILLING to pay for it one probably won't find it conducive to survival. Likewise one's employer must be WILLING to offer employment and every employer has the right to refuse employment to anyone and doesn't have to state why that employment has been refused or terminated.
I rather like the idea that people have the right to associate or not associate with whom they choose. Collective decisions are always problematic unless unanimous as illustrated by our Civil War where the population very of no state, Union or Confederate, was unanimous in it's view of secession from association with the United States.
Why would it have to if you've written the contract competently? Termination of a contract can often be made without ANY reason given. Terminating a contract appears to be a straightforward process. In general, a contract can either expire on its own or be terminated by the participating parties, with or without cause. There is often a provision that allows renewal. While the process is usually straightforward, issues may arise if the contract contains provisions that survive termination.
You may wish to terminate a contract for convenience, which may be done if the agreement includes a clause titled “termination for any reason by notice.” If this applies to your contract, read through that section carefully to figure out what the required term is before you start the process. A common notice period is 30 days, but your contract should outline the required notice period. If your contract doesn't include the option to terminate for any reason by notice, you cannot legally terminate a contract just because it doesn't meet your needs.

Grounds for termination are usually spelled out in a contract and are usually loose enough to allow any parties to the contract to end their participation in the contract simply because they want to by not renewing the contract.
