Divisible contracts Any performance of a contract may be a condition of the other party`s performance obligation. Where the contract is legally divisible, the performance of one divisible party may fulfil the condition precedent of the corresponding divisible performance of the other party. A contract is divisible if the performance of each party is divided into two or more parts; each party owes the other an equivalent number of benefits; and the performance of each party by one party is the exchange agreed for a corresponding party by the other party. If it is divisible, the contract is treated for certain purposes as if it were a number of contracts, as in employment contracts and rental contracts. If an employer hires a potential worker for one year at a weekly wage, the contract is divisible. .
