Yesterday, I started a role, as a contractor, that was sold to me as a home based job. I accepted this job at £50pd below my previous rate due to its home based nature.
I’m now told on day 1 that I’ll have to report into office 5 days a week for the foreseeable future (contract duration).
Being based in London means commute is a sizeable part of the equation.
What do I do?
EDIT: Had a straight conversation with both the manager and the agent. Pay was increased by £50 effective today. New contract will be issued in a day. Thanks to everyone’s advice.
FURTHER EDIT: The Friday of the same week, I was asked to report for work, daily, at a different location, which would take an hour and a half by train, from where I currently live. As soon as the question was put forth, I got up, gave the manager a piece of my mind, left the laptop on the desk and walked out. A terrible ordeal and a valuable lesson learned.
The advertisement clearly stated home-based. That the job was home based formed the crux of all discussions related to pay, etc. However the contract does not explicitly state home based. It has both onsite and home addresses for work locations.
