Outside IR35 banned
CEST assessment completed by HR and hiring manager in isolation from the contractor and without review of the contract. Despite Contract terms and working practices allowing substitute, they have said no substitutes accepted. Engineered an inside IR35 outcome for ever contractor on the books. No communication until 16:30 the day before a bank holiday, then tried to push contractors into FTC or Inside IR35 through Umbarella. Disgusting organisation would never work with or for them again even if it was the only option on the table!
