Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: Atos consulting
Third party used to do assessment. Judged inside in early March. It would not have been difficult to get an outside assessment but they said it was a role based assignment. Contract reassessed once the Gov delayed the legislation.. then suddenly it was reassessed as outside IR35. They and the agency care only about their own risks.

IR35 fairly assessed
Initially assessed under CEST tool. Determined outside IR35. 3rd party company drafted in to perform an additional assessment where a number of questions were asked. Determined outside IR35. I believe all contractors in the past month were assessed fairly through the 3rd party company as it was forced from HR to do so.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Atos are using CEST, the managers assessing are untrained and do not understand the process. A large majority of assessors are not taking in to account contracts. Advice is being given to assessors by a so called IR35 expert that sits under workforce management that has clearly stated that Atos are not prepared to accept the risk of outside assessments due to possible liabilities. Walk in sessions being held with so called IR35 expert for managers and comments made that contractors should have known off payroll was coming and they are getting what they deserve!!!!

Unfair IR35 assessment
Incompetent use of the CEST tool by untrained managers, without consulting and understanding the PSC contractor and what the contract entailed.

Outside IR35 banned
Blanket ban on PSCs even with SDS and external legal assessments as Outside IR35. Major client projects at risk.

They are not giving any information even upon asking them again and again. They are saying we are working on it and will let you know once we are done. They deliberately want to leave the announcement for the last minute.
