Outside IR35 banned
Assessments were done via CEST but it apparently only to pretend to have individually assessed each role, but it is effectively a blanket ban on PSC's.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: IT
Diageo have covered themselves carefully this time around. All contractors have been through an assessment process (using CEST) including board reviews where a status was initially inconclusive. However - all positions have been found Inside after review, with a handful of exceptions. These exceptions constitute people in senior positions.... While Diageo have played the compliance game correctly, their final assessments are in line with their decision to non longer use PSCs. Basically it's a blanket.
