This logic should work with the agency who also know the rules of the game.
    They'll have an easy out for that:
    "No sign of him all week so we terminated on Thursday. Honest guv."

    Yup, there's always that.

    Towards the end of contracts, I tend to Bcc my personal email address to offer Proof of Life to the last day. Just in case.

    And no, I have never had to test that thinking, much less state that it would work.

    I'd be a little wary of that approach. Send client information to your personal email may land in you more hot water. Need to check the IT policy and contracts to see what the score is around company information to personal mails and also the actual nature of information in the mail you send. It's possible but need to be very careful.

    Towards the end of contracts, I take a selfie at my desk, with me clearly logged in on the clients computer (no sensitive information showing), and holding up that days newspaper front page. Just in case.

    Is that with your tinfoil hat on or off?

    Perfect. Had to laugh (with you) at this one.

    Careful no one thinks you're being held hostage and tries to count remaining fingers in the photo...

    Small paper cut with blood to smear over the desk can also lead to a contractor DNA match, standard practice immediately after an agency 'chat'.
