    Deciding to WFH without advising the client is pretty poor relationship management.

    I knew some idiot would come up with that one.

    Firstly, many contracts state that at least the agent is made aware early in the morning they will be absent.

    Secondly, advising the client you won't be in first thing is a matter of courtesy and manners and has **** all to do with D&C. It also clears up any misconceptions or assumptions that would get the contractor in to the situation they are in. We've got not one, but two posts with the exact same situation. A courtesy call to the client would have cleared both up.

    Do you ask your accountant before making these phone calls?

    Why do people not broach the WFH question about a week or two into the contract?

    I’ve not had anything where I cannot do it for nearly 20 years, and 20 years ago I was setting up WFH systems for my then employer.

    Current gig is contracted to WFH and client pays travel and accommodation if I leave the village.

    Why not BEFORE signing the contract?
