Further to our comm’s on 28th February 2020, in which we confirmed that Primark will no longer engage UK Contractors through a PSC. In the interim, effective today, we are confirming that this serves to formally issue 4 weeks’ notice of termination. MASS CONTRACTOR EXODUS.

Every single SDS appeal was declined with the same response. Primark no longer engaging with PSC. FTC or Umbrella only.

Initial CEST was completed using completely erroneous information. Appeal rejected without reason or feedback.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: IT
They used CEST and said it wasn't a blanket assessment but oddly enough, we all got the same answers. Appeals have duly gone in, but that was 2 weeks ago and nothing further has been heard. The atmosphere is poor and a number of contractors will be leaving

No fair assessment, blanket decision, when challenged shoulders shrugged. To be fair they are so vague in the role that I am not surprised and it is probably safer for all to assess as inside!

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: ICT
CEST used & everyone found inside. They say role based but feels like blanket assessment. 1 week to appeal then 1 week to sign a new contract or walk. New contracts not shared until you agree with the SDS. Parity are also charging 12.5 percent for employment ‘costs’ before PAYE. Everyone leaving if appeals fail
