That really sucks, but as a contract employee, you'll always be shafted. Take the offer and look for a new job right away. It's employment and technically you wouldn't be in a contract working for 2 months, allowing you to leave anytime you'd like.

Could have been worse OP, could have not been told until it was time to be let go. Then no time to find a new job. Plus, perhaps you can use them as a reference. Most likely you're being let go because they pay you more than a newcomer. Sucks, but it happens a lot.

It's clearly a contact or temporary positron so as long as the original contract has run is course, HR isn't going to care. A boss can say or insinuate your going to stay on longer or be kept permanent but if you're temp, it isn't legit until paperwork is signed saying so. So op should have never banked on it (but remained optimistic)

I was going to say "tell him to stick it", but decided that you really should accept. It's always easier to get a job when you have a job. If you get a job quickly you can leave then.

Finish the work in 1 month, but don't submit it. A couple days before your last day, submit it and let your boss know you finished it a month ago and you're really that good. Bit foolish to let an efficient and useful person like that go, innit.

It's practically standard procedure in the Netherlands nowadays to give out three temporary contracts and then fire the employee so they don't have to give them a permanent position. Very few people get to pick and choose the type of contract they get, permanent position hiring is very rare.
