Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Project Management Team
Sadly NFUM have made the decision to assess all its contractors using CEST which we all know is flawed and does not give a compliant SDS. The project I am working on is due for completion over the next 5 months and due them finding everyone inside IR35 they will be losing at least 8 of their senior contract members at a crucial time which will put the project in a crisis. Why would they treat their contractors in this way but more importantly why throw projects under a bus at a financial loss when there is a simple fix by using another product other than CEST at around £70c per contractor. I always thought NFUM would want to keep the best and keep ahead of its competitors but they will lose the best to companies who assess fairly
