IR35 u-turn made
Unfortunately we have all had our contracts terminated. Tough times indeed.

Unfair IR35 assessment
CEST tool used but answers provided weren't aligned with the contract. Answers skewed to favour an inside determination.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Division: MAG IT
SDS given for the current contract finishing Mar 31st - and assessed as INSIDE IR35. Person assessing has done this without reviewing contract nor working practices. It's a blanket call. The agency RICOH has not advertised he roles in writing to be outside IR35 - but verbally stated it was. So contractors signed up on that note - and now when the client incorrectly has determined the status, RICOH is silent and not supporting the contractors.

Unfair IR35 assessment
Dishonest in their approach. ExCo strategy was to assess everyone but assessments have been done without reviewing the contract and by people that don't have a direct relationship with the contractor. Determinations don't reflect strong clauses in the contract and proven ways of working. Nobody appears to have been given an outside determination, demonstrating they won't move from their current risk position. Appeal process exists but no indication the position will change.

Unfair IR35 assessment

Dreadful approach wholly aligned to client risk-avoidance. Vast majority leaving in my area. Blunt application of CEST, absolutely no consideration of working practices.

Not convinced of a “reasonable care” assessment here. CEST tool used by hiring manager and HR representative. No mention of third party advice/engagement. A very sad day for the airport. I can see lots of contractors leaving.
