ENTIRE

2. When a contract is entire, it must in general be fully performed,
before the party can claim the compensation which was to have been paid to
him, for example, when a man hires to serve another for one year, he will
not be entitled to leave him at any time before the end of the year, and
claim compensation for the time, unless it be done by the consent or
default of the party hiring. 6 Verm. R. 35, 2 Pick. R. 267, 4 Pick. R. 103
