I booked a job this week for 3 days design work Tues — Thurs. The agency only had enough work for me for a few hours yesterday. I contacted the recruiter today and she said I'd *ideally* have to charge only for the hours worked.
From my POV, I thought I would be earning X amount of money and then its been cut down because the client didn't have enough work for me. My understanding originally was that I'd be charged the day rate regardless, so its a bit of a blow to be paid less because someone else has been disorganised.
Does anyone know if freelancers have any rights in this area? Or of what I can do in the future to prevent this happening?
