Contract Question

Recommended Posts

I know a few posters do contract work and may be able to help please?

I was taken on based on a 90 day written agreement (no employment contract) and paid monthly PAYE.

The company have decided they no longer want to do the project I was taken on to manage, and have, in their words, 'terminated my employment' after 45 days.

I filled every part of my brief to the letter - am I due the 90 days pay? I would think so, as I completed my part of the agreement.

Any advice appreciated.

When you say paid PAYE, do you really mean PAYE of just that you invoiced them monthly? If it was actually PAYE then you would technically have been classed as an employee.

PAYE, so I was an employee. Seems a bit severe that they can just change their minds and terminate with no notice.

Then it looks like you should be covered by the statutory minimum notice period of one week.

Fixed term contracts

Generally, no notice of the expiry of a fixed-term contract will need to be given, however, if the contract is terminated by giving notice before its expiry date then the correct amount of statutory notice should be given.

Failure by the employer to give the correct notice period may amount to a breach of contract and employees may make a claim to an employment tribunal.

Cool, thank you, did some Googling to work it out. Better than nothing! Incidentally, more and more of my acquaintances can only get contract work nowadays - is this the way things are going?
