Contract wasn't signed, had to switch from using billable code. Is this legit? I was told that this is normal for pre work but this means my days of work are all for naught and I won't get credit :(

Seems unclear, it's reasonable to ask for clarity.. did anyone suggest that the contract wouldn't get signed or did you think it was only a matter of time?

Happens all the time.. I hit a PD code for most prelim work. Once we have an engagement letter initiated and codes are set up.. I just request finance to move my time to the correct codes.

Was the contract dropped entirely? This has happened to me and it sucked. It reminded me that we aren't supposed to do anything until the contract is actually signed. Template readying and stuff is fine but nothing substantial
