Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. Firstly, I need to ask some initial questions to determine the legal position.
Thanks for getting in touch. I will get back to you with my answer later today. Many thanks
Many thanks for your patience. The contract states that they should give you on average of 20h per week to carry out the services. It would be too easy for you to say you don’t have any work for them and then get out of paying the fees, otherwise any contract could potentially be avoided in that way. They could always say that they are ready to give you the hours and that it is not their fault that you have no work and that they should still be paid regardless. Only if they were unavailable to provide the services would they not be liable for payment. That is my legal interpretation of this.
