Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
You are indeed correct that the company should have given you 2 weeks notice to terminate the contract and if you had any specified hours in the contract, they should have honoured these for that 2 week notice period. The issue would be if you had no defined hours of work, in which case as a contractor you have no automatic right to receive work, which means they could still give you 2 weeks notice but give you no work for that period and pay nothing. However, either way, you need to have been given these 2 weeks as notice and potentially have been paid for them if the contract said anything about contracted hours of work.
Does this answer your query?
Hi there, according to the contract there is no obligation on them to provide you with any work at any time so they could potentially use that to state that whilst they are giving you notice, they do not require any work to be undertaken. You can only potentially argue that they should pay you if you already had specific work booked in for that time or you had achieved milestones for which they have to pay you. In any event, you can indeed contact their HR to discuss this but this would be your legal position. Hope this clarifies?
All the best
