What are the consequences of not renewing an employment contract for a long-time contract employee?

Question:

We currently have an employment agreement with an employee who has done work for our firm for many years. Every year, we sign a new contract for the upcoming year. The period of her contract is ending soon, and I do not want to renew her contract, although she has done nothing to breach her contract. As an employer, are there any consequences to not renewing her contract?"
