I agree, report anyone who does this.
I'm not sure that's right though. Cojak and SueEllen both asked BiS about it and got two different answers but one was that the agency can chose which method of working it wants and if you don't like it you go elsewhere. A bit like agents deciding they won't deal with umbrella contractors etc. That isn't illegal.
