Outside IR35 banned
PSC ban. No consultation. I've been offered payment alternatives, none of which are palatable. They have also taken the opportunity to try to negotiate my rate down on the sly, which is absurd. Fortunately they are the only supplier to have taken the PSC ban approach, currently, so I am shifting client to one of the fair ones. Offer already accepted.
Goodbye Jacobs, you're added to the list of companies I'll never work for again.
Goodbye NRL who have been garbage - nothing but complicit and collaborative with Jacobs, no support to contractors. Don't forget where your % fee came from and good luck coping with modest finders fees in future, assuming that not everybody discovers that clients advertise the same contracts directly on LinkedIn these days. Cut out the middle man contractors, agents are obsolete in the modern world. Get a better rate by cutting out unnecessary agents fees.
