A Subcontractor signed up for short form of contract for some simple works. Then an instruction was given for some increase of scope which was not part of the original.
However, due to bad weather, they were being stood down.
There is no CE clause for short form of contract, do they entitle to anything?
Are they entitle to the whole stand down cost?
Or should it be assess as 1 in 10 weather event?
Or they don’t get a penny?
