I find that the end of my contract is approaching faster than expected.

A few weeks ago I was informed that my contract, in common with a lot of people at $ISP wasn't going to be renewed. $ISP has been cutting back on staff. This wasn't a problem as my contract runs till January 2009.

I've found out today that $ISP actually gave everyone a months notice, and therefore my contract will end at the end of this month. I am rather pissed $AGENCY didn't enlighten me of said fact.

Shall read contract to determine legal status.

Fortunately $ISP_Manager is giving teh_good_reference.

I have no doubt you'll get something going.

Got one month's notice that the contract was ending 2 months early. Been unemployed 3 months now.

Get those resumes out now.

have had the monthly termination thing. It has never been enforced yet.

I've always wondered what the point was of having an x month contract (x>1) when this clause was in there, rather than just rolling it over - I guess to cut down on the paperwork.

However, if they told the agency and the agency did not inform you I think you have every right to be most pissed - another reason why I have never used an agent yet, and have no intention of doing so in the future.

Apparently, your $employer has invented time travel. There is probably a way to exploit your {profit|horrifying pan-dimensional doom}.

If you see me in 2009, remind me what stocks to buy.
