Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: WBA One IT
Less than 3 weeks before my contract end date I was asked about staying on for a short period.
Upon my request, a CEST assessment done by HR dept and sent to me. Had all the hallmarks of being done by somebody not familiar with the actual working practices or knowledge of the contract.
I responded the same day with supporting information and examples from my contract that contradicted their assessment.
I have not heard anything since and therefore I assume that I will be walking in 6 days time.
I believe my project will be affected but WBA maybe do not?
I feel pretty unprofessionally treated with regard to the lack of communication though I accept that I am not alone in this as others are in the same boat. It is sad that a good business relationship that was working for all parties is being impacted by this poorly thought out E2E process.
