    Do we actually know what the above actually means? I suspect it could be open to a lot of interpretations.

    I think this is one of those cases where we don't know the full picture and the OP wasn't paying attention to what the original contract says as he seems to have personally signed a contract of employment rather than anything to do with his limited company.

    Now if he was an IPSE member I would be suggesting he called the helpline but there is so much missing from this story and so much that you can read into how on earth he's got into this position that I suspect he hasn't even heard of IPSE let alone is a member of it.

    Correct but they also get very stroppy even if the agent is sending them snips of the legislation to prove what they should be doing. You'll get a snotty email and you client manager will come over and have a word advising it would be better to drop it

    Both are covered by the Freedom of Information Act.

    There were a couple of posters on here when the legislation was coming out that stated very clearly that Crossrail would be effected.

    Are you personally employed by this agency or is there a contract in place between your company and them?

    You seem to like the forum yet missed the whole section dedicated to contracting in the public sector. Doh...
