Hi , I took on a temp job ( Im a freeXXXXX XXXXX) via a recruit

Customer Question

Hi , I took on a temp job ( I'm a freeXXXXX XXXXX) via a recruitment agency/recruitment business. Before the job started I sent my rates and terms to the agent to be forwarded to the client as I did not have a contact for the client it was all going through the agency. The agency/ business agreed to my terms on the email and returned it to me. At this stage I was under the impression that the client was aware of my terms. Towards the end of the job I found out that the recruitment agency/business did not give my terms to the client and the client does not want to pay my travel expenses which were agreed by the agency/business on my email. Now the agency/business is back tracking as I want to challenge them in the small claims court. Who is Liable ? the agency? is this deceit on the agencies part? will being a recruitment agency or recruitment business affect the outcome?
