    termination of the contract _advise

    hi
    my contract has been terminated without any notice for reasons that I was not diligently performing my duties under agreed deadlines etc. i do not agree with it.
    i have given them realistic dead lines for the deliverable and reasons why a particular date but nothing was said or challenged until today when they terminated the contract.

    please advise..

    The stated reasons are likely nothing to do with the real reasons.

    You may be lucky and paid for the notice period. Or you may not.

    Sadly I am 99.9% sure that they are legally entitled to terminate the contract under the terms you signed.

    I advise you put it behind you are start looking for a new gig.

      It wasn't due to a complete lack of capitals in any of your documentation?

      But seriously... Unfortunately this is the crappy end of being a flexible resource. It could be any one of a million reasons. It's a clause you can't really argue and will be very difficult to prove so you won't go legal with it so it's their catch-all. Could be something as simple as your face doesn't fit. It's in the contract so they've pulled it on you. They could have given you notice but not given you any work which means no money so effectively the same thing but maybe they don't understand that side of the contract.

      Whatever the reason is you are done. Doesn't matter if you don't agree, absolutely nothing you can do about it now. Do a bit of soul searching to see if you really could have done something a little different and maybe use that as a learning exercise for next time. That's about all you can do now.

      Good luck in your search for a new contract...and don't forget them capitals.

          Is the last working day the same day as the end of your contract?

              How would that have made any difference? They would have just asked you to leave immediately as they did. You don't get paid notice period if you don't work it so same outcome.

                you don't have to work the notice if the employer does not want you to...

                  So, what answer would you like us to give you?

                  Have they said they won't pay you for the work you did up to the point they terminated your contract?

                    They are not your employer.
