    My feeling is that you do have rights but its not worth the hassle. Best to write it off as a bad job and start hunting for something else asap....

    First rule of contracting an agent is never your friend even though he may talk to you like he/she is. NEVER tell them ANYTHING or give them references before you have been offered work, I am in their faces with this even if they tell me its a deal breaker if I don't provide them, and NEVER EVER cough to knowing someone within an organisation. Its just another technique to glean intelligence from you.

    The OP does have a variety of rights.

    There a rights under their contract of employment to the umbtrella. If there is one in the chain. There are rights in any contract for services if they have entered into one. The prospects of these being helpful is likely vanishingly small.

    In terms of the actions of the end client on the OP they are afforded protection via the employment protection legislation. The possibility exists that the OP is protected as a result of meeting the definition of worker. Again it is a very slim possibility. I recall there was one success some years ago.

    The barriers are very high. It largely comes down to

    "You can't do that"
    "I just did, your move"

    Lol, yup. The law is only really relevant if everyone involved considers it relevant. If people ignore the law, it's typically extremely expensive and difficult to have anything done about it.

    But what I dont agree with your suggestion of going back to permie. You dont chicken out at the first sign of trouble. You fall, learn and get up and move on.

    Thanks for your advice anyways. Keeping it positive

    Perhaps you were just tulip then and it's just a coincidence the SMS came at same time?

    SMS from agent to your boss said

    Is newbie working for you? He is looking to jump ship? Drinks soon on me xx

    Boss, yup, thanks I will get rid
