    Default deductions / statutory benefits / Crystal Umbrella

    Hi all, just wondering if anybody went down the tribunal / legal route in the end or managed to claim anything back on unlawful deductions?

    After reading this thread I've just noticed CrystalUmbrella are also making deductions as part of 'additional required contributions' which consist of employers NI and 'statutory benefits'. If you don't ever receive any statutory benefits from them, how can they legally justify keeping this money they have deducted? They are refusing to refund anything.

    I'd definitely avoid Crystal Umbrella as have had no end of issues in 4 years - including pension payment errors and most recently 'system errors' meaning very late pay, no payslips, and subsequently messed up tax. This week I was even copied into invoices about another contractor showing all their day rates. Complete mess of a company.

    elouise as the umbrella company is your "employer" they are not allowed to make deductions to cover standard statutory rights such as sick pay, or maternity / paternity pay. This is something they must cover... if the deductions are being made and you are employed under a contract of employment (COE) then this could be perceived as unlawful deduction of earnings. You will need to look closely at their explanations and make sure you check your COE.
    Just watching what I say

    We now offer Ltd too, so if you need a company that you can switch between Ltd & Umbrella, just shout!

    Actually I edited it out as no longer needed. Mods had scraped the spammers scum off the threads so the name was irrelevant.
