    Then you have answered the question.


    You've signed for contract A, you work contract A. Next time don't sign as fast.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Depends on when you are due to start and what loses the agent will incur. No penalty in the contract but they could sue you for breach (depending on the exact details of the situation)

    It is your first contract, you have learnt a lesson.

    A successful contractor will have built a reputation for honouring contracts, meeting deliverables and proving himself as reliable.

    We all have had better offers in contract, and those of us with professional integrity have sat out the existing contract and often whole project. You are now in contract and a exit would be breach of contract.

    Go with contract A and start your contracting career on solid foundations. It is personal discipline as well as professional image.

    There is no moral issue. You are a business. Not Claire Raynor. Turn down B and you might find that A cancels your contract at the last moment. Look after number one.

    At the moment you don't even have the gig. Go to interview. It might never be an issue.

    Pretty simple then: will you pay a price for burning bridges? Scotland is a small market, so I've made it a point never to burn bridges because your name can get around pretty easy here. But if you're in London or whatever, maybe you can afford to piss off half the employers, I dunno?

    If you want an opinion, you should forward with the contract A… and one lesson learned.

    Would this be a case of contractus interruptus?
