I have signed a contract a month ago to start getting consistent work from a company. The boss promised me an average of 25 hours a week (but that wasn't explicitly written), but for the past two weeks there have been no reasons for me to come into the office, as there was, to my surprise, no work being offered to me.
Even my boss hasn't shown any concern at me not showing up. Project managers typically come to the employees for more things to do, but they are paid on salary. Here are some relevant statements from the contract:
To help [me manage my time] as he may have other projects and clients, the company will try to provide a weekly project outlook in advance when applicable.
While work may be performed outside of the [company] office, [company] requests that project updates and major milestones are done at the office. We anticipate that to amount to 2 to 3 times per week.
The last two weeks have fallen really short of these expectations. If I don't have work, I don't have hours to report, so I do not get paid. This makes me feel like I've been put on furlough, but doesn't that usually apply to paid employees and not contractors?
