Royal Bank of Scotland IT contractor ban sparks murmurs of legal action


"So, having deliberately avoided employee status so they could dodge tax and NI, "contractors" now want the protections which employee status gives?"

No they are being told that they are going to be taxed and treated as employees but not given the benefits that employees get.

I bet you'd be pissed if someone told you that you no longer had paid holiday entitlement, pension contributions, paid bank holidays, sick pay, maternity pay... oh and by the way we are outsourcing our payroll and we need you to pay £100 a month for admin.
