I am a freelancer and currently working with a client found through an agency. The contract was drafted by the agency.
- The Freelancer supports according to the needs of %agency% and %client%, approximately 40 hours per week and up to n.a. hours in total.
- The Freelancer shall notify %agency% and %client% about any time frames where the Freelancer is not available in a timely manner (e.g. 5 - 10 working days beforehand).
- In accordance with the Terms and Conditions, both Parties shall be entitled to terminate the individual Project Agreement observing a notice period of 10 days.
The client says he wants to end the contract, and my notice period has started. But he refuses to give me any billable work anymore.
Earlier, I was working 40 hours/week, and now it's 0 hours/week, which means I have zero income effectively immediately.
Can he do this?
Note: I have no interest in involving a lawyer or harming my relationship with the client/agency. My question is about the contract based on the information I posted here
