Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Apologies for the delay. Is there a notice period of any kind in the contract or anything related to the termination of it?
Also just to check are you working as an employee or on a self employed (contractor) basis?
Thank you. It would not be possible to force them to issue an end date but you can argue that there was an end date to start with and they have continued extending he contract without there being any contractual provision allowing them to do so. As such, whilst you have agreed to work a bit longer to help them, you are no longer prepared to do so. It would therefore be best to give them a specific end date that you nominate and state that this is the end date of the contract and you are not prepared to work under any further extensions. Also you have the right to terminate this agreement with a week’s notice so at any time you can issue that to terminate the contract. There is nothing wrong with resigning and you have the explicit contractual right to terminate the contract yourself so if needed you should not hesitate using that.
