Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: CyberSecurity
Flawed approach to IR35, they allow SOW based approach through some 3rd party companies who deliver nothing but just a dummy warming of the bench. They let go lots of genuine contracts in the name of blanket ban but bring contractors through their favourite companies via SOW.

Expedia Group
Outside IR35 banned
Division: Engineering
Decision delivered extremely late. No proper consultation, no individual assessment. Used CEST tool on my own initiative to discover it finds me outside of IR35, company saying tool isn’t 100% reliable. I feel Expedia Group have left decisions on IR35 too late with no involvement of current contractors. In summary, the options were in these words, leave or go under payroll scheme. Not happy at all.

PSCs banned from 28th Feb. If staying then it's a choice of four Umbrellas and will have to personally pick up the employer NI costs.

Outside IR35 banned
Division: IT
Have been told that an external consultancy reviewed all the individual contractors and found that over 97% were within IR35 so, Phoenix have decided to not use PSC contractors, only PAYE. Agencies are now giving you the option of Umbrella companies or nothing.
