Re: up to a 20 per cent pay cut overnight... For many, the cost of their current mortgage
I think the real test for a contractor is independence, my companies client is not my employer, and I am not their employee, if they try to treat me as their employee, that is a fast track way to have the contract terminated and they loose my expertise.
My company will provide planning, development, employee training, team management etc..
My company decides when I work, where I work, how I work, not the client.
My company provides the equipment I use where possible, and if not there must be a reason why I use the clients equipment or systems.
