    Default any umbrella's operate a cycle to work scheme ?

    I am interested in is the "cycle to work" scheme and likely to get brolly'd soon so any umbrella's operate these ?

    Cycle to work scheme implementation guidance for employers - GOV.UK


    most companies now run some form of salary sacrifice for the cycle to work so was hoping the Umbrella's would be up to speed with this.

    Are you crazy ?

    Umbrella is not your real world employer, and don’t know if you are getting renewed the next week or not

    Other Umbrellas should take note, it could be this kind of thing that differentiates them from their competitors in a legit way.

    I guess if we're all going to be umbrella employees then we ought to have access to everything any other employee can get.

    Only what other people at the same umbrella get?

    What you really want is the agency rules where you have the same rights as permanent staff after 12 weeks. It's why a lot of firms will be requesting umbrella companies rather than agency payroll.

    And something that isn’t going to cost the umbrella an arm and a leg to provide. Cycle to work stuff and perkbox probably falls under that category.
