At least you have a day’s notice! Many years ago I was told one Thursday morning that I was being rolled off. I had to run back to the hotel and grab the bag of shoes/supplies I usually left over the weekend before heading to the airport that afternoon, otherwise it would have been left behind!

There is no such thing as a reasonable notice. Some people are given notice well in advance and some get rolled off in the same fashion you did. There is no standard. I would spend less time worrying about when you were told you were rolling off and focus on the reason behind it....and sometimes you’re no given a reason.

S1 Better than being told not to fly the following week after you head home!

@A2 now that I think about it, that’s happened too! Luckily I didn’t leave any bags that time lol

Yeah just because they don't technically have to give you notice doesn't mean it's reasonable not to. Personally I would always accept 2 weeks and I'd tolerate 1 week.

I once got rolled off during vacation. Had left a bag at the hotel at the client site. Was an interesting phone call to the front desk explaining the situation and figuring out how to get my bag back!

@D1 if you had alt travel planned the weekend you got rolled off you might not be able to expense the return flight to client site. Also, it’s nice to have a week or two to start looking for projects before rolling off (although I’m also at the point where I’m happy to enjoy my beach time and not rush to get staffed immediately).

like

Does it matter? Either way I would bill for my time and expense whatever travel.

M1 Did the hotel end up covering that, the firm, or was it out of pocket?

The hotel charged my Amex over the phone. It took a lot of convincing and three phone calls though

We’ve done week of and sometimes two weeks out. Business needs

Once told to take the next flight home. It happens
