Coronavirus is, of course, top of the agenda and in Jason's blog piece last week he shared our organisational protocols. Jason talked of our duty of care in a business like ours that is unequivocally all about people and getting individuals together. Thank goodness for Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts for helping us to keep the momentum going in our search and interviewing processes. We’ve seen several appointments made this week using this technology. Will this become the new norm?
On the 4th of February I wrote an article on IR35 and the “Boris Boost” on the interim/contract side of our business and impact on UK plc. It led to a lot of interesting discussion on our social media channel and heralded a series of information guides and events on IR35.
At Russam we are working closely with our interim candidates and clients to guide them through what’s involved and what their options are. If your business is affected by the new legislation, we would strongly urge, if you haven’t already, to start taking steps to determine the status of all contractors operating through a PSC within your business, particularly given timelines involved.
Russam have been navigating through IR35 since 2000 and ensuring that the contracts we agree are fully compliant from start to finish. This article answers questions you may have about IR35 and if you require further help please get in touch.
Despite being first introduced in 2000, IR35 (also known as the off-payroll working rules) has rarely been at the forefront of businesses and charities minds. However, with not long to go until the roll out of the rules to the private sector, it is now a crucial area for organisations to focus on. Read on to understand the key aspects of the legislation, our top tips for compliance and how Bates Wells can help your organisation.
