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.
