    Don’t submit invoices. You’re doing no work. If you want to make it look better, then get a client you can work for during that period. Even if it’s helping out at a local pub for a week - get them to pay you as a supplier and put it through the company books.
    Hmmm, I looked at it as them offering me a contract of x days at a daily rate which I accepted, and them forcibly removing then right for me to be paid for those days. I took this as an indication of them not having to supply me with agreed work within the contract dates.

    Coupled with the fact that they cant enforce the same conditions to their permy employees.

    You’re the supplier, not them!

    If you’re expecting them to “supply you with agreed work”, that would be S, D & C all in one box.
    Supervision: They are supervising/telling you how to run your company.
    Direction: They are directing you to not work at particular times
    Control: They are telling your company to submit invoices when you are not doing work for them.

    Spin it around. If you wanted some time off and they said no how would you feel about. You can't do business with restrictions like that in place. We work on a T&M basis. Work a day, get paid a day, rinse and repeat. If it was forced like that we'd be on fixed price. Many clients get contractors in because we are more flexible than their workforce, not less.
