Outside IR35 banned
Division: Presales Customer Solutions
Despite working via an SDS/Work Package and 'outside of IR35' for the past 4 months already (Underwritten by Xpertise injunction with Qdos) - Hiring Manager wants to extend past end of Feb, initially into end of March and then beyond. Vodafone will not support the request. 3 of us leave in 2 weeks. Internal project stops and the true value that would start in the 2nd phase does not happen. 3 of us working on the project (internal) have gone over and above helping hiring manager get over this hurdle, but Vodafone will not change their stance. All Contractors being put in the same bucket and treated as 'agency' staff. Disgraceful.
