I am a female and the client manager hit on me. I did not respond and the working conditions and attitude towards me deteriorated rapidly to an extent that I wrote to the lead engineer that I cannot continue working.
After that for several weeks the situation was bearable. At one point the flirting and pressure increased and I had to humiliate and write to the manager that I had feelings for him. This did not help. At one point I had to ask him gently not to consider me as a female.
Within several days he extended my contract. It was Friday. On Monday morning the situation in the office was unbearable: bad attitude towards me, bullying, my PC was not working all day. I had to complain to the agency and to threaten with legal action. They got me out of control.
On the next day the agency responded in favour of their client. I could not stay in the office and I left at around 11.30. I returned at around 17.00 to continue working and my contract was terminated. The manager threw me away.
Yes, but they are the client's employees. I have my complaints to them in e-mails.
I already talked to ACAS and they told me that I do not have a right to tribunal as I work via my limited company.
how do you consider that...
What are my option then?
I believe the agency is in breach of contract as I did not have proper working conditions.
Yes, I will attach the contract to an e-mail.
I paid for the additional service and subscribed for a free trial.
I attached the agreement to an e-mail.
Could you please let me know if you have it.
I worked 8 weeks and a half and I was not given or paid any notice.
The contract started on 27 July 2015 and was terminated on 22 September 2015 with immediate effect.
There is a clause which allows them to terminate the contract immediately if their client terminate it immediately.
Could you comment on this.
In case you are sure that the agency is in breach of contract should I go to County court or Employment Tribunal?
My last question is do I need to employ a solicitor to do this claim for me?
If so could you recommend a good one?
You helped me a lot.
Have a nice day.
