I am in a situation unfortunately. I have had some great advice from here before and would like that advice again.
I am a contractor. I have my own LTD company (sole shareholder
). I was placed in a contract
for a client through a recruitment agency.
Due to the client conduct towards me, I still had completed the requested task and left/walked out. I know i breached my contract with the agency as I was suppose to give 2 weeks notice. I did inform the agency about this.
The client is now threatning to sue me and file for "loss of business
". I know there isnt any or very very little loss of business as he can easily find a replacement.
There is no direct relationship between me or the client. Only through the agency.
I understand the client must prove loss of business. But can he sue me/file for loss of business? I am worried.
I have been reading the contract more and more and seems I maybe liable.
