Contract

Hi There, please advise. This year I''ve reached my retirement age, until recently I''ve been a contract employee thus no benefits just paid for the months worked. When on leave, no pay. I was informed that my services would no longer be required due to reaching my retirement age. At the beginning of this year though my contract for the year of 2010 was re-newed and signed by myself and a company representative. They say now it was a mistake? Could I dispute this?

Sounds very much like breach of contract on the part of the co. U should have a copy of the contract + if signed by both parties it should be legally binding. Contract workers r also entitled to leave + if the co. refuses U paid leave then it amounts to unfair labour practice. Don''t let them get away with it.
