    I would get this clarified as you've already confused the situation with your own wording. It's zero days notice. Not no notice. One is saying I'm going now and they say OK. The other is just going without having to tell anyone. Notice MUST be given, it's just the timelines that are in question. Gotta be really careful. Only takes one person in a chain of three to confuse it and it's all up in the air.

    I do think a bit of time making sure everyone is very clear on what this means would be worthwhile. I know I'm being overly pedantic but we get so many threads on here when someone is in a pickle because they didn't do something properly.

      PSR are 0 days notice, it's written earlier in the sentence. You're out as soon as you can hand back the Surface Pro.

        Sounds great. Every client I know has walked a contractor with zero notice at some point. Serving notice simply saves them making something up and the agent having to soften the blow to you that your services are no longer required and there's no notice to be worked because "insert platitude and excuse here". Demonstrating that you served no notice despite four weeks in the contract is good for IR35 because it shows that financial risk happened (like a less crushing form of life insurance needing to be cashed in!) but this reflects the actuality of what happens in contracting imho.

        Just means that if you think it's crap, you can get out on day one without begging anyone to let you go. Also saves messing around with worrying about overlaps at the end of a contract when you're looking for your next one because work is drying up.

          When you leave a customer you always need to think about whether you might want to return. If this is a large company and you plan on a long career as a contractor that is highly likely. Companies can afford to rub up contractors the wrong way, that doesn't work the other way around. That is a fact of life if you're a small business.

            Exactly that is my mind set
