    You've added the word "work" into it.

    If you don't have a signed timesheet you don't get paid.
    If you don't work during your notice period, you don't get paid.

    I understand your point, but there is 5 days notice period on his contract and you need to know the conditions before working in the notice period. Where are the returning equipment conditions?

    Whilst a lawyer will quickly and efficiently resolve, the costs of employing one may not justify the gains. Let's say OP is chasing down 2000 for his 5 days worked, any good lawyer is going to need to spend around an hour going over the contract and being briefed on the situation, a further hour drafting a letter and then potentially a final hour sending a response if the clientco come back.

    A very conservative estimate of three hours worth of legal time would probably be somewhere in the region of 600 for someone junior. Whilst you can write that off against your CT bill, you will also have spent a fair amount of your own time chasing this. Do you really want to go to that effort and expense (including your own, valuable time which frankly you cannot put a price on) to chase a grand? (assuming that the initial 2000 figure is in the right ball park) - you may be better off focusing on the next challenge, sending some tailored applications and undertaking some training for your next desired gig.

    If you don't want to get legal beagles involved, id try and raise an MCOL claim against the agency (if not opted out) and just see where you get with it. You can withdraw at any time and it only costs a few quid. Usually some official court paperwork is enough to prompt someone into coughing up.

    Unless they feel that you're taking the proverbial and they are perfectly within their rights.

    In which case you're down to hoping that they don't want to pay out unnecessarily, rather than actually being right.

    You and NLUK and the lack of ability to analyzing the problem in-depth makes me laugh.

    The contracts have terms and termination conditions between the contractor and the agency to protect both parts, the Agency has another contract with terms and termination conditions with the client. Don't tell me that in the UK a lawyer or a court does not have the power to check the contract between the Agency and the Client if necessary? If not I must conclude that looks like a 3 world country (with no offense). I presume if you won, the blame part will pay all the costs, in the UK no?

    The court would the last choice because you may lose the Client but this is another long story.

    I read it as email from agent. I guess it's not so clear.
