    Question Contract Employee, refusal of benefits from agency

    I have a possible breach of contract issue, Back in July I went to work as a contract employee. As part of the employee package contained a "carrot being dangled" with the agency offering a 1500 hour longevity bonus. Now almost 1400 hours later, after making an inquiry into the bonus, I'm told that I don't qualify for it because the agency was doing a favor for the company I am working for and was't hired to fill the position. Since my employee package contains this "carrot" do I have a legal point to persue the issue?

    Btw: The bonus amount is $500 and while not a excessive amount it's still not exactly pocket change.
    Additionally, I'm now being told all the other benefits being offered at the time of signing will not be provided

    Before I invest the time and probably $ in talking to a laywer, I need to know I have a valid case.

    Please advise.. thank you

    If it was in your contract, then you are entitled to it. You should consult with a local business attorney if you wish to pursue the matter.
