Were you an employee?
I am not clear about one thing, I understand who your employer is but they are not the ones who actually terminated the contract are they?
In other words, the contract was terminated by the host organization, right? And, if so, who actually is contracted to the host organization? Is it your home organization?
I am not able to speak on the phone nor am I going to be able to do any homework. That is not how the site operates.
But if you want to reply back to me tomorrow and explain what I am asking about that is certainly fine.
So that is where the problem lies. Is the home organization willing to sue the host organization and is your home organization paying you as an employee still?
Your home organization must address that as you don't have a contract with the host organization and so it will be very hard for you to sue them successfully.
And you cannot sue your home organization because you have a union. So what your best next step would be is to consult with your union rep and ask for the union's help in pressuring your employer to take steps to deal with the host organization so you are not hurt by their breaching the contract.
And don't let the union say there is nothing they can do as they owe you a duty of fair representation.
The whole point is not missed. I misread part of what you wrote but your posts are terribly long and hard to follow.
So you can sue your own employer if you are harmed by them but you cannot sue the host organization.
Your employer owes you a duty of care and so has to do whatever is necessary to ensure that your reputation and your career are left intact.
You are not understanding what I am saying. I have tried to explain that as you are an employee of your own organization and not of the host organization you cannot sue the host organization. Their contract, from what I gather based on your answers to me, is with your own organization and your contract is with your own organization.
If that is the case and you were not an employee of the host organization you cannot sue them. You need to get your own organization to redress this.
If you don't understand this still I will opt out and let someone else try.
