    That does not matter to me as I no longer have to use one thankfully but I think the point may have been that they do not have history where the claim could go back the 6 years where I guess some of the better known ones have. Maybe, as I say I am not really bothered and simply taking a punt, if I lose out it will only be £100 but if it works out it will be thousands coming back.......fingers well and truly crossed :-)

    It all comes down to the way in which the umbrella communicates the deductions, if an umbrella ever claims to take this from the workers pay, then yes they are correct and the umbrella could find themselves in very difficult waters. If the umbrella is clear in communicating that the employment costs are met from the monies received / invoice value before the employees salary is arrived at, then not sure how they would argue it.

    Come on then, be interested to see who they are and what's the link?

    Lucy, I have no idea who the brolly is as I do not need one nor did they provide me with the name of them. I have registered my claim and now wait to see what will happen, no doubt it will take ages as did my PPI stuff but time is on my side...lol

    I remember the first time I saw my wage slip and it showed the Employers NI being deducted and I questioned it but it was all too late and they said it has to be that way. It would be better to advertise roles with your take home after all deductions rather than gross.

    It wouldn't think it would be possible for an agency to advertise a rate after all deductions, there's too many variables per individual to give a broad estimate. They should, however, make it abundantly clear that the rate being advertised is not their salary rate and is inclusive of employers deductions.

    Ermm

    The clients costs are unaffected by the worker's circumstances and nothing to do with them anyway. The agency doesn't count it's margin in the advertised rate, so why include other overheads?

    It's mis-advertising, pure and simple. And therefore illegal...
    Blog? What blog...?

    While advertising "Smurf rates" is illegal it's up to the ASA to police the advertising industry (including recruitment ads) and deal with the complaints and they haven't shown any interest in years even when Unions have complained directly...

    Meanwhile you will pay them £102 and never see that back - I wonder if the plan will be to charge more later...
