Worley SCAMMING Contractors with their new PAYE contracts.

Outside IR35 banned
Division: Engineering
Contract rate reduced by 25% to new PAYE rate presumably to cover Employers NI and Holiday Pay. WRONG was I. The holiday pay received only accounted for 6.5% of the reduction. With Employers NI accounting for around 13% I asked where the rest of the money had gone. When I asked for a breakdown of how the PAYE is determined I was advised they would not provide that information. I was PAYE for 2 months before leaving this bunch of charlatans, and received £1200 less in holiday pay than I should have. That's equivalent to £7200 per year. Worley, and Energy Resourcing are at it, big time, good luck to anyone desperate enough to work for them. Worley have been scamming money from Contractors for years now whilst charge out rates have remained the same. Skinning Contractors rates to pay for useless entities such as People Consultants - wtf are they?

Worley contractors told to accept PAYE or leave

Outside IR35 banned
Division: Engineering
Worley contractors have been told to accept a new PAYE contract or leave. In fire/rehire scenes reminiscent of P&O, contractors are handed a termination contract on a Friday afternoon along with a rehire contract with an average rate reduction around 25%. This follows on from last year where Worley engaged a third party to determine contractors IR35 status. Contractors were accountable for paying for this determination. As you can imagine, morale among contractors has hit rock bottom and they are struggling to get any new talent to accept the low rates they are offering. All contractors are now actively looking for roles outside of the organisation. Worley will quickly find they lose all of their talent and end up with the people other organisations are not interested in.
