    Client could withhold payment though.

    Put together a handover plan to show that it can all be handed over before you finish.

    Exactly.

    Other posters missed that point.

    I think it's pretty rare a client will withhold payment for something like this. It might irk the client manager but the payments and legal side won't want to be buggering about with it. Agent could be more of a problem. I could be wrong but we very rarely hear of clients not paying on here. Nearly all agents no?

    No it doesn't. Remember, if a client offers you no work, you can't bill them. And this works the other way too.

    OP - Simply say to your "manager" that you're unavailable for the final two days (you don't even need to give a reason) but that it's all ok as you won't be invoicing for those days.

    No work == no money. No money == no work. Cuts both ways.

    You can't go back for those two days without having a contract that covers you for those days. Highlight that the contract ends on whatever date the two weeks are up. If they want you in for the next two days then you'll either need to have a contract in place or an indemnity signed by an authorised person at the client co which states that they are liable for any mistakes because you won't be insured.

    If they produce a new contract, reject it / stall until you are out of contract and away from there.

    I assume you aren't going into hospital for a stay or having an Op??

    Just tell them you are available from 5pm through midnight for both those days when you get back home. At least you have made an offer to do the time

    Exactly. A contract is a framework within which services can be delivered and paid for. Typically there is no stipulation in a 12 month contract (for example) that the contractor will provide services for 220 days, or will provide services for the last two days of a contract.

    If a contractor has a three month notice period (as in another thread), then give three months' notice and advise you won't be providing services within that period. If you're feeling kind, offer to send a sub.
