Well at least now you have a couple months to work, earn money and have time to look for another job before you're let go.
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.
Why didn't you're boss tell the truth about letting you go? This requires a visit to HR.
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)
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.
And THAT is why I avoid contract gigs like the plague... Also, FYL, sorry OP.
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.
