    You know you are a contractor right? You have a contract that you signed which has legal obligations. How do you think you are meeting those by just going home and forgetting it ever happened? Granted you could still be in breach but not talking to anyone isn't going to help the situation. And we haven't even got on to common sense and acting like a professional.

    Not the best question really.

      Here we're seeing the difference between contractor theory and contractor in practise. Not for the first time...

              Fantastic answer, sounds very ethical and all things being equal with people actually adhering to said contract. Not everyone follows 'contract'. Whatever happens next is each to their own.

                And everything you have mentioned is the moral part of things. People just 'leave' for whatever reason they see fit. Yes there are contracts which people need to adhere to, I'm not here to judge whoever decides to take whatever action. The question was a question. Some people are squeaky clean in their approach to life/work and some aren't.

                  But you would hope every contractor would. To walk away from a gig and not bother telling the agency is just stupid. You are in contract to do a piece of work. You don't just walk off and ignore it.

                    Sadly the email alerts one receives when being quoted doesn't contain the full text, just a preview and most of it is therefore taken up with my waffle, but you originally started with:

                    'What a daft question. Of course you tell the agency'. Sounds like a very confident response as if every single human would do this.

                      I suppose some people think contracts for services should be treated the same as a failed relationship. Just ghost them until they give up and go away.
